Photographer's Note

In contrast to the food soi uploaded yesterday this shot shows you a very typical Chinese market in Bangkok's Chinatown Yaowarat. Naturally in every market there is food on sale, but as this is a very typical Chinese market there are - how I call it - Chinese temple needs in red and gold on sale in the BG. There are plenty of golden or more correctly orange colored candles and red lamps as well as paper money to "pay" respectively burn that the diseased can pay or bribe their way in the other world. The reason: One of the very important Taoist temples in Bangkok is just around the corner. At the left there even is a Buddhist nun asking for alms.
