Night street, Mandalay

Motorcycles and street vendors at night in Mandalay

I like this photo, but what's going on may not be immediately obvious. This was around 8:15 PM a week or two ago. On the sidewalk to the left, there are a lot of people at those low tea shop tables I was talking about. They're mostly obscured by motorcycles because that's how most of them arrived. (Remember that when I say "motorcycle" the biggest displacement you'll find is 125cc.) In the centre is one storefront vendor who hasn't closed up for the night yet. To either side of that storefront there are food vendors, cooking out on the street with a couple tables set up.
