Rama IV Street, which runs through Bangkok's Chinatown, is a large street with many cars driving around. Although there are sidewalks at both ends of the street, they are narrow and cramped with street vendors setting up their stalls on the sidewalks, which are not wide enough even for a street. The street is crowded and jumbled. I turned my eyes to the sidewalk on the other side, thinking it might be empty, but the situation was much the same. The same stalls were doing business in front of stores with signs with Chinese characters written on them, with large umbrellas spread out in front of them. No matter which side of the street you were on, the sidewalks were littered with trash.
A closer look at the sidewalk on the other side shows a dog poking its head out of a gap in the messy sidewalk fence to the side of the roadway. The dog must have been brought by the female street vendor whose back is in the photo. The dog seems to be accustomed to playing by itself, since its owner is working and can't spend much time with the dog. The dog is used to playing by itself. It stands alone with its head out in the driveway, watching the passing cars. It is fun for humans to watch the cars that pass by so quickly. The dog never got tired of watching the roadway.
