This video (*) will blow your mind: http://www.wimp.com/vegetablemarket/
It is of a small fruit market built around train tracks. Display trays are mere centimeters away from the tracks, and the entire stalls are morphed and bent around the train as it passes by.
I know more than one workplace health and safety inspector that would be less than impressed at the setup. As it is, though, it provides immense fodder to fuel the inspiration of stories in exotic locales.
*sorry, I can’t figure out how to imbed the video on the blog, so you’ll have to swing over to wimp to view it.
