Brazil End of the VW Van
In this Sept. 3, 2013 photo, Jorge Hanashiro and his wife Ana, prepare deep fried meat and vegetable pastry pies at an open-air market, with their light green 1974 Volkswagon van or Kombi, parked nearby, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. "There may be safer and more modern cars around, but for me the Kombi is the best vehicle to transport my stall and products to the six open air markets I visit each week," the 77-year-old Hanashiro said. "It is economical, rugged and easy to repair." (AP Photo/Andre Penner)
