The woman was selling lotteries on the sidewalk

Shot at Chinatown in Bangkok, Thailand.

Although Chinatown in Bangkok is one of the tourist destinations, not all the visitors are tourists. There are also local people in the area and the goods for them are also sold on the streets. What the woman in this photo sold was the lottery.

A table was placed on the edge of the sidewalk and she was seated at the table. Many small pieces of paper were put on it. These pieces were the lottery. They were sold for 80 baht. And the highest prize money is 6 million baht. This lottery is very popular in Thailand and it was common to see people selling them in spots in this city.

Because they were lotteries, the expected revenue is lower than the purchase price. So it is said that lotteries are a tax for poor persons. Yet Thai people can not make a rational decision by seeing the situation like Japanese. Everyone wants to dream of making a fortune at one stroke. The price is the cost of the dream.
