“Soup Washer” Photograph

It looks a bit like this woman has her hand in the Tom Yam soup but it’s actually the dishwater, or at least one of the bowls of dishwater with (at least) one more cleaner one for rinsing to go.

Thailand is rightly famous for its great street food but one problem is what to do with all the waste it creates. A lot of it ends up getting tipped down the roadside drains where the solids settle creating a blockage that makes floodwater rise more quickly and stay for longer.

Photograph taken in Chinatown, Bangkok, Thailand
