The man was riding the Vespa in the crowd

Shot at Chinatown in Bangkok, Thailand.

Walking the lanes, I came to a busy street. It was flanked by shops and many pedestrians walked. I became part of a crowd and continued to wander.

People on the street were not only shoppers but also deliverers. Yet the street was too crowded to go with cars or trucks. So the deliverers used a motorbike to deliver goods. The man in this photo did the same.

He drove a motorbike called Vespa and the goods were put on the rear deck. Although I didn't know the reason, I saw many Vespa in Bangkok. Vespa is an Italian motorbike made by Piaggio, a largest company in European motorbike industry. It was used in the movie 'Roman Holiday'. The company might have a factory in Thailand.

Anyway, it is difficult to feel Thai atmosphere because the motorbike is made by Italian company and the driver seemed to be an Indian descendant.
