these birkenstock sandals I had worn for two months while backpacking through indonesia, singapore, malaysia and thailand. they had done a very good job to carry me through dust and mud, but finally the were giving in to the neverending road. so i bought new ones for the reminder of the trip.
being aware that they still could be worn for lighter duties and people around me rarely seemed to have shoes at all, I decided to leave them right on the street near the bangkok market where I bought the replacement. in a sentimental mood, I shot this "good bye" picture of them before I walked on.
i wonder if they are still worn today.
