Selling Raindrops

What happens after a cool and cleansing downpour? Men take to the streets and sell peanuts.

In the Philippines, traffic is a way of life. Moreso after a heavy rainshower. You'll see these men plying their wares, and weaving their way through traffic-stuck cars.

They'll sell multi-colored cleaning cloths, umbrellas that you can wear on your head, various Nokia accessories such as a charger you can plug into your car's cigarette lighter...

...or even steaming mounds of peanuts.

It's the perfect after-the-rain moment in the Philippines.

May the rain and the stoplight give you a chance to pause, smell the resurrected air, and thoughtfully nibble on a few peanuts.
