Pots and Pans

It's Friday morning and this gent is on his way to the market place. He has just come from canvassing homes either trying to sell some of his new shiny utensils or purchasing old metal scraps and implements that householders may have lying around. I checked out the big circular tub in the middle of the utensils - and it's full of metal scraps. Also lots of metal bits and pieces on top of his pyramid!

Everything is recycled and if you go down to some side streets close to the Big Temple you will see such men (as the above) with small charcoal fires melting pieces of scrap metal and pouring them into moulds to make either statues of idols or pieces of bric a brac.
