Street vendor in Taipei selling food

I was on my way home tonight as I walked by this street vendor who had a little stall selling food. As I walked by something caught my eye and it was him bringing water to the food stall for food and washing the dishes with the same water. What caught my eye even more was the water hose that was coming from the gutter I looked closer to confirm and sure as hell the MTF was pumping water from the freakin gutter to wash the plates and use for the food at his stall . If you think that Taiwan has better hygiene than China you are in for a big surprise and have a lot to learn.

The hose could be connected to a fresh water line underground.

Could also be a nasty ass street cart selling rat meat in Taipei.

You make your assumptions... I will make mine.

The odor alone from that gutter is enough to knock one out. There is no fresh water line down there. This is Taiwan and not Japan

My fault... Freakin Iphone 4 turns the picture sideways if you hold the phone upright to take a picture. Don't have that issue with a regular camera but with the Iphone 4 one needs to remember which way to hold the Iphone in order for the picture not to come out sideways. Would be nice if Apple would fix this.

Isn't that something? The phone that supposedly does everything, can't sense a picture to tell which way is up.

This one I will never forget. This guy washes his vegetables in the bathroom sink that they use to wash the mop in which they wipe the bathroom floor with. Taipei is a city which leaves you with many memories.

Makes me appreciate Singapore. They have a grading system for all their street vendor food.
