Bangkok Market Vendor Creativity
Lima, Peru

Sometimes I really admire the people of Thailand. When it comes to crafty business initiative, you can regularly see some real talent in the country—quite a contrast to much Latin America.

This video out of Bangkok depicts a symptom of overpopulation, entrepreneurialism, loose laws, and careful timing. It does not depict poverty, or an impoverished lifestyle—it's simply creative people in an interesting location.

Here's another video of the same market

I have seen this video as well. If memory serves me this is the big weekend market in Bangkok. A good place to get some cheap backpacking supplies if you are up for a little bargaining. I got some clothes there once.

I think it is pretty cool that the people selling and the train operator seem to have an understanding with each other.

Cool clip. I posted this on my video page a week ago and since then I've noticed it pop up everywhere.
Nice travelogue!
