Cleaning the pots and woks

I found the centre of Bangkok’s money laundering operation, deep in the back alleyways of Chinatown…

Clean cash.

Clean cash.

Seriously, the Thai people are meticulous about cleanliness and hygiene.

In Talat Noi (Chinatown), which is not so much a tourism hub but where locals work, eat, shop and live, I saw them scrubbing their pots and woks at the start AND finish of the day, and constantly sweeping clean the footpaths and laneways.

The pride the parents have in their children’s school uniforms is something to behold.

Air pollution, however, can give a feeling of general dirtiness.

More on that next…
