The worker who does her best to keep her city clean


We live, we breed, we work and we sleep in the city. We do what we want, almost at our whims, naturally because we feel that the city belongs to us.

I dedicate this article to a worker of the city. This woman works for hours cleaning the mess that we create. She doesn’t earn much, yet it is a job that gives her somewhat an income to survive. She clears the streets so that we can walk. Bangkok belongs to her.
