The container in front of the man was filled with many parts of pork

I came to the edge of Khlong Toei Market. A butcher was doing business there. And its backyard was in plain sight from the passage. And I could see a young man who had a straight fringe working there.

A big plastic container was placed in front of him. It was filled with water and various parts of pork were put in. And the young man was washing the parts. He might do it before selling.

However, the way of washing seemed to be rough. He had a battered dustcloth-like object in his hand. He washed the pig leg with it. I thought the pork was not treated gently. So these parts of pork were not articles for sale.

Anyway, the young man was scrubbing down happily. And he smiled at my camera when I focused on him.
