A bicycle ran slowly in Bailan Market

In the Bailan market, shops were lined up on both sides of the public road. There were no roofs or arcades, so the sun was shining down on the streets inside the market. If the weather was bad and it was raining, it would be a hassle to come here for shopping. It was a typhoon season when I arrived, but fortunately, the weather was good. The sun was shining brightly on the road and there were no rain clouds above.

I was walking along the road that stretches through the market. I saw an old man on a bicycle coming from over there. He would have come to shop. He was moving slowly, looking here and there at the shops. He was wearing a tank top.

It is my personal opinion, but I feel that the people who look best in tank tops in the world are the Chinese. Why is that? There are many people wearing tank tops in India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar, but for some reason, tank tops remind me of Chinese people. Even Chinese people in Japan do not always wear tank tops, I wonder why.
