A man in a straw hat was shopping at a stall in an alley

I walked deeper and deeper into the narrow alley. I passed many locals, but most of them were indifferent to me. No one even approached me. I continued on my way through the alleys of Bangkok without a care in the world.

After a while, I saw a straw hat in the shade at the end of the alley. A rather large man was standing in the shade, wearing a straw hat. He was buying something from a stall. I wondered if it was some kind of lunch box. On the other side of the wagon stood a female street vendor. But she was in the shade to avoid the strong sun, so I couldn't see her very well. It must be a tough job to do business in such a sunny street.

There was a electric pole standing next to the wagon and a number of electric wires running overhead. The place seemed to be a fork in the road, and the wires were stretching out this way and that. There were so many that I was worried about getting tangled up in them.

The sight of power lines stretching overhead reminded me of Asia. In Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, there were also many power lines running above the road, a scene that is familiar to me in Japan. This was Bangkok, Thailand, but it would be acceptable to say that I took this photo in an alley somewhere in Japan.
