Study the photo and tell me what you see.
Okay, you can't speak with me, so I'll imagine what you are thinking.
A street...it's a divided highway, but how could you know?
A railroad bed...unless you live in the US and don't know what a train is.
Weeds...fairly obvious, because that's what grows beside all road.
A fence/wall...if you are perceptive.
Banana trees...if you are not horticulturally challenged
A rusty pole...if you are pedantic.
I'll you in on a secret: the only significant bit is the leafy strip in the middle, directly next to the rocks of the right-of-way.
This is a prime example of the resourcefulness and thrift (and, perhaps, poverty and desperation) of the Vietnamese people. They can make a business out of anything and turn any piece of land into a farm.
Crops are planted, tended, and harvested in the sliver of dirt between the country's major rail line and the main north-south highway.
I wonder when Big Food will start consolidating these "farms"...
