Chong Chom Border Market #1

The makeshift cloth roof in the walkway allow the imagination to suggest the market might be installed under a green sea.

 

It is the large Chong Chom Border Market, on the Thailand side of the Cambodia:Thailand border not far from our house. A lot of the items available are cheap&nasty Chinese-produced rubbish, but there is some good hardware, cloth, and Cambodian fruits and vegetables at compelling prices.

It's good some local stuff is available!!
Ray: We often buy some of the Cambodian fruit and veggies, Elizabeth...usually it is a bit different from what we grow across the border.

Everybody likes a good browse in places such as this Ray. Avoid cheap & nasty, you only live once!
Ray: I occasionally acquire a bit of it, Chris...in order to pull it to bits and confirm my theories on this clever play for World Domination.

C'est original cette couleur verte.
Ray: Cela donne une «sensation» étrange sur le marché, Martine, et j'aime l'expérience de l'errance ici.
We get a lot of Chinese produced rubbish here too
Ray: The Chinese have captured the market in disposable tatt, Bill.

This must be a fascinating place to roam Ray. I like that sickly green.
Ray: It is good fun to wander around in the vast, tatty place, Chad.
Ray: I think the Chinese have captured the World's market for rubbish, Brian.

The Japanese did a similar thing 60 years ago.

Next, if theChinese follow the successful model pioneered by the Japanese, great efforts will be made to increase the quality of what they produce, and pretty soon they will have taken over as the World's Manufacturing Super-power! We will all be driving Chinese electric cars, and travelling on Chinese super-fast trains.
I see life jackets in three sizes.
Ray: Yes you do, Mary...I wonder if they float!
It certainly has that effect, Ray - a submarine market!
Ray: And...you even get wet when it rains, Tom!
