While out walking around with my camera I came across this woman loading up her ‘motorcycle-truck’ for lack of a better name with garbage and recycling.
Julianne told me the woman was laughing her ass off at me taking a picture of the garbage/bike as we walked away (something else had caught my attention and I didn’t notice). I imagine if I saw a Chinese person taking a picture of city ‘sanitation workers’ and garbage/recycling trucks in Canada I might find it a little odd too–though maybe not as I take pictures of ‘odd’ things.
On another note, when Julianne told me she was laughing my response was, “I don’t think she’d be laughing if we told her the salary city sanitation workers in North America make.”
Since today’s been a kind of mentally rambling day I’ll go even further and wonder if the authorities in China would let Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs do a series of episodes here. Can you imagine the humongous mobs of people that would gather to watch him doing 3D jobs here?
Makes you think, don’t it?
