On the block

A block of ice is laid on the ground. When a small axe is smashed against it, it breaks into smaller pieces that splatter across the shop’s wooden floor. Then a man — with no gloves — drops chunks of ice into a crushing machine. A white plastic sack — washed and reused — is put underneath for the crushed ice. The sack is now ready to be sold for 50 baht a time.
