This morning I went for a stroll to get a jug of water. I walked down Binjiang Dao, the fancy shopping street, and took a few pics.
In China, everything gets cleaned every day. I mean everything. Every day.
I have concluded that the reason for this is twofold:
1. There is so much smog and dirt and grime that if things were not cleaned daily, every surface would be filthy in a matter of days.
2. There are so many people that the government needs to come up with jobs somehow, so they make them clean things.
Clean them how?
Well, I’ve showed you a few pictures in the past of them cleaning sidewalks, but I took a few more today.
Washing the windows… every morning
Apparently you can take a picture if you’re in camera mode by clicking the sound button. Who knew? Not this guy.
Power washing the streets… every morning
Getting the employees excited for selling clothes!… every morning
There is at least one store that does this every morning… they just come out and dance and get pumped!
Wiping down the trash cans… every morning
Waiting to sweep the trash off the streets that people are too lazy to throw out… every morning
My morning ritual just includes a healthy (or maybe unhealthy) dose of eggs and a shower. But hey, you do what you gotta do right?
Lastly I have a few other random pictures. I think I’ll let the captions speak for them.
It wouldn’t be a good post if I didn’t include a nice chicken sandwich from Dublin Pub, now would it?!
I thought the Chinese were good at math? I guess backwards 1 equals 498?
