culture shock

IMG_9363 Yesterday, as I walked to the market I saw the street cleaners working.

I've seen them in the past weeks, but never really "watched" them...

There is a guy, walking down the street with a blower...he blows the leaves off the sidewalks into the street for the street cleaner to "vacuum" up.

There is another guy, driving a dump truck. I didn't know why this guy was in the group...

IMG_9364 Then I saw why...

The front of the street cleaner machine lifted up, and out came a "drawer" that had collected all the leaves and rubbish from the street.

It dumped everything into the back of the dump truck. No one got out of their trucks...in fact, they only slowed their pace just a little to do this.

IMG_9367 I was amazed. Do street cleaners work like this where you live?
