"Chopaya," a wood engraving, 1878

Source: ebay, July 2005

"From the original source:

When our chopaya arrived before the bungalow, absolutely the vehicle did not look amiss; and with its body painted sky blue and ornamented with flowers and grotesque divinities, and its little sculptured columns, it would not be out of place in a museum.  Its team of large white oxen, harnessed with red cloths, also gave it a vague resemblance to the chariot which, according to the legend, carried our rois faineants over the streets of Paris; but let me confess that, quite insensible to all its picturesque exterior, we busied ourselves principally in arranging the interior, and padding it comfortably.  The body of the carriage eight feet in length, and about five in width, was figuratively divided into two parts, the hinder section, stuffed with mattresses and cushions, forming a vast bed, on which we should be able to sleep comfortably enough.  This was the bedroom; while the fore part, in which were placed a table firmly strapped, our guns and instruments, and two straw easy-chairs, with a sea-lantern hanging from the roof, formed the sitting-room. These preparations occupied the whole of the day; and, as we intended travelling night and day without stopping, we got into our chopaya at nightfall and left Sipri."
