We walked the line… Today’s (well yesterday’s but I started this yesterday) first stop, after a 5am pickup, was a local market that sets up on an operating railway track. When the train comes through at 830 am everyone rushes their produce off the line and pulls silly tourists to safety. The main thing wasn’t so much about the train, although trains did form a pretty special overarching theme to the day, but I do love a good Asian food market. Mostly for the characters and the faces, but also the quite amazing produce.
Aren’t they just brilliant? Such a wonderful, alive, vibrant, human Thailand compared to what I’m seeing around here.
Ummm bbq toad anyone?
Maybe not. But wait, the train is coming!
And then it’s gone and back to work.
And we are rushing back to the mini-van for our next exciting adventure, thinking that nothing could really match a market on a railway line!
