Tourist gather when the train comes past. This happens around four times a day. That’s when all the stalls with fresh food get quickly packed away, so the train can pass.

When the train has gone, the stalls are immediately reinstated. It’s an interesting thing to see. You wonder what the fish will taste like, as it sits there next to the railway line.

The locals don’t understand what the tourist are so fussed about. For them, this is normal. They carry on with their activities once the train has gone.
