Gigantic Trucks

I think the kids, and myself included, thought that the trucks at the mine were the most impressive. These are the largest trucks in the world. They cost 4 million dollars each, and each tire cost over 50,000 dollars. They are gigantic. The other impressive thing about these trucks are the drivers. They are, for the most part, driven by local Papuans. Most of them didn't even wear clothes before learning to drive these massive trucks, and most had never seen a motor vehicle before.
