Photographer's Note

In downtown Bangkok beats the heart of the Thai capital in Yaowarat, the around the clock pulsating Chinatown. There is one particular lane, which is turned into a very busy wet market from sunrise to sunset. Here food traditions still are very much alive as this photograph certainly proves.

Some 4,000 years ago, the Chinese began to use sun and wind to prevent spoilage of foods. Dried foods include sausages, pork, ducks, fishes, shrimps, vegetables and all kinds of tofu. Traditionally, winter is the best month for drying food stuff because the wind is dry and cold. However nowadays most of the dry foods are produced in dehydrators all year around. Moreover loads of dried food in this market is imported from China.

Due to a very heavy workload I have been away from TE for more almost 3 months. I now will try to visit more frequently.
