We often take the most simple of things for granted, thinking everyone will do it as we do. We forget that the world is vast, the people too many and the cultures quite simply very different.

This is How We Ride a Ferris Wheel in India
It’s not only in North America or Europe that both children and adults enjoy a theme park or travelling fair.

This ride can be taken anywhere, anytime, with no need for technological help in giving fairgoers some fun.
