Our landlord hired some day laborers to fill in the dry pond with sand. While the laborers were having a break in the shade, we shot this photo. Their day started around 7:30 am, and they brought their food for the day in bags, and some took off their shoes and worked barefoot. Each person brought a hoe, and each person brought their baskets — a basket tied to each end of a sturdy bamboo pole which they carry over their shoulder. So different than the world of tow trucks and all that.
