I made a parade of amigurumi minivans depicting my hometown (Bandung, Indonesia) ‘s public transportation.
Angkot is short for angkutan kota (means city transportation). Bandung uses different colors for cars servicing different routes. It usually consists of 3 stripes : the base, the body (main color), and a small stripe to separate them. Almost all of them use the color green for at least one stripe, representing the city’s slogan Clean, Green, dan Flowery.
I love how colorful they appear, some of them look like candies! Imagine pink colored minivans!
My friend darkblu79 even documented these candy-colored minivans a couple of years ago and made a wonderful collage photo out of them.
