Walking on the railroad tracks. The railroad tracks near Mae Klong station, Thailand are still in use by trains, and at the same time, they are a market where fresh food is sold. Stores are lined up across the tracks, and shoppers come and go. The railroad tracks are the aisles of the market. Of course, the tracks were not laid out with people in mind, so you have to walk on ballast and sleepers. It is a little difficult to walk on. However, it may be a good thing for the people doing business. Shoppers can't hurry through the market, so they may end up buying more than they need.

When it was time for the train to run, the stores would pull back their goods and let the train pass by, but the train would not arrive until later. The merchants went about their business without a care in the world.

A woman was walking in front of me. She stopped in front of a store and started examining the goods on display. She picked up a plastic bag and was talking to the clerk about something. I saw the clerk responding to her bluntly.
