These fellows squat in this small, but ornate stand, selling beetle nut and other chewables which are wrapped in a leaf. This is the entire shop. A shelf about three feet deep and maybe 8 feet wide, with two guys sitting all day on the shelf (about waist high). In many ways it is the ultimate walk-up customer service set up. No bending, reaching, or waiting. Imagine it as an ATM for treats, or a gonzo vending machine, only with live human animation, mirrors, beveled glass. Maybe by now they could have LEDs at night.
