A resident of Tracktown, a strip of illegal shacks alongside one of Thailand's main railways, carries food to Siam Square, one of the wealthiest shopping areas of Bangkok, be sold to hungry shoppers and people on their lunchbreaks.
People do what they do best: Adapt. Although extremely poor and living a few feet away from busy a busy railroad line this ghetto in central Bangkok has the feel of a small Thai village. After a day's work parents relax outside their home watching their children play badmitton.
A family takes care of the cooking and washing in front of their shack just a few feet from a busy railroad track. WIth land too expensive to buy, apartments to much to rent and little to no jobs for unskilled labor many families are forced to live on whatever land they can find. In this case next to a busy railroad track.
With no government services available, residents burn their trash alongside the railroad tracks in this slum in central Bangkok.
