Pedestrian bridge across from Mona Lisa Massage.

This man was selling Buddha amulets. I asked if I could take his pictures (I always do, except when the subject is sleeping) and he asked for 20 or 50 baht. Nobody ever asks me for money to have their picture taken but he asked for it in such a convulated way that I figured he both needed it and was trying hard not to be a plain begger. I mean, I can speak some Thai now, but he lost me there. Anyway, it didn't look like the amulet business was going too strong so I paid for his picture (50 and luckily, I didn't screw it up.
