A Cocotaxi Ride Across the River

In this clip, our cocotaxi driver, Emma, zips us (as if in a coconut shell on a motorcycle) over the river with my partner Trish and son Andy. A 15-minute ride with Emma cost about $5 (great for her, I'm sure, and fine for us). Three Americans in a coconut on wheels -- that's about the max.
