    Unique marketplace in Thailand

    I would say India has lost control of its density somewhere:

    http://="http://videos.komando.com/2...range-market/"

    http://videos.komando.com/2008/09/15/strange-market/

    This is a link to Kim Komando's Video of the Day.

    You may may not be able to go directly to the video to see it. You may have to go to her site to look for it. It can also be found in her archives after today.

    It's in Thailand, not India

    The website clearly says that the video "comes all the way from Thailand". I'm curious to know what made you assume it was India.

    Moderator note:
    Changed the thread title. When I first saw it, I thought "Why would Streck be posting Indian forum spam?


    Back on topic: it really does seek like something that would be in India. Most images and videos of overloaded trains, buses, and other forms of transportation that are circulating around the Internet seem to depict India.

    Yup, it's Thailand

    Seen this vid long time ago.

    The scripts on the side of the train and inside it are Thai.
    None of the people are Indians: not the little boy on the train. Not the traders. Neither are the customers.

    I also saw a much longer version of that one a few years ago where it also showed everyone clearing out of the way as the train was approaching. It looked like it was just a few steps short of chaos, sort of like the people running a yard sale scurrying about when a sudden rainstorm hits.
