A homeless boy sleeping ~ Oblivious to everything


I went through a busy Huai Khwang, the low-cost housing area, and the street-based wet market. Thais and a handful of migrant workers worked side-by-side, selling food, coffee, meat, poultry, newspapers, clothes and just about anything.

Took me about 30 minutes to cross the bustling crowded area, into Wat Promwongsaram and out to Vibhavadi Rangsit Road, a notorious stretch of bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Crossed the overhead bridge, and saw a boy, in his early teens, sleeping under the highway ~ the comforts of the shade, away from the blistering heat. His outstretched dark hand was holding an empty white cup.
