I was wandering around the market on the railroad tracks, which is the main tourist attraction in Mae Klong. The long and narrow railroad tracks stretching through the middle of the market are still in use. Although there are only a few trains, they still run through several times a day. Therefore, when the train arrives, the people who have stores along the track temporarily close their stores to let the train pass. However, the train only makes four round trips a day, so most of the time the market stores are occupying the tracks. Given this situation, it would be more accurate to say that the train passes through the market several times a day, rather than that the market is open on the tracks.
There was still some time before the next train arrived. Inside the market on the tracks, shopkeepers were working at their leisure. The bespectacled woman in this photo was one of them, working leisurely. In front of her was a large tray with bamboo shoots scattered on it. The surface of the bamboo shoots seemed to be slippery. I wondered if they were boiled in water. The woman was silently chopping the slippery bamboo shoots into small pieces with a knife.
