“Wet Foot In” Photograph

This particular spot in the north of Bangkok is notorious for its temporary flooding during rainstorms and flash floods like this in the rainy season leave commuters at the mercy of bus drivers in many parts of the city. Some drivers avoid the flooding so the passengers can only get to the bus by paddling their way through the water, which in this case was up to about a foot deep. Other drivers don’t mind getting their wheels wet but in driving through the water risk drenching the waiting passengers either with spray or the sizeable waves they create. Often the practical answer is that passengers wait at the nearest relatively dry spot and the drivers obligingly pick them up there.
