A short walk from the Democracy Monument in Bangkok, I came upon this dazzling array of shoes for sale, all haphazardly thrown across a simple plastic mat. Barefoot girls dashed about the tiny space like little bumping cars trying to grab a pair before someone else did.

For someone like me who detests bargaining, this was perfect.
