Walking along Mahachai, I came to a magazine store. The store is filled with magazines, and there are magazines hanging from the eaves. A wide variety of magazines are sold here.
The publishing industry in Thailand, like in many other countries, is said to be in a steady decline, but from this store, it seems that there are still many different types of magazines in circulation. However, even in Thailand, smart phones are common, and people who are bored or have something else to do can be found staring at the screen of their phones. In such a situation, people who indulge themselves in reading magazines are probably fewer and fewer. Maybe magazine retailers like the one in the photo will disappear in the not-too-distant future.
As I walked away from the magazines with this thought in my mind, I saw a bicycle cab called Samlor parked there. There were no customers at the magazine store, but it seemed that no one was interested in taking this bicycle cab. The driver seemed to be bored. He was sitting on the seat of his beloved car, stretching out his legs and relaxing.
