Woman Putting Chopsticks Into Bucket

Shot at Chinatown in Bangkok, Thailand.

After wandering the streets, I came back to the bustling Chinatown. It's hard to believe it was silent to just now. Many shops were side by side and many people were walking around. And some food stalls were doing business where I walked.

I found a woman working behind a stall. She had many pairs of used chopsticks in her hands. It was said that it was not common to use chopsticks to eat in the original Thai culture. People usually ate food with a fork and a knife here. Yet where I stood was in Chinatown. So the stall provided chopsticks.

During watching, she started to put used chopsticks in a plastic bucket. Apparently, she seemed to separate the garbage. Like in Japan, they were also recyclable in Thailand. The locals here might be also eco-minded.
