Yambol's Gypsy Street Cleaners

Yambol's Gypsy Street CleanersWe see these every day in Yambol, the Gypsy Street Cleaners, they work all day keeping the pathways and roadways clear of rubbish and grit. Without them many of the drains would become blocked up with mud and grim that builds up on a daily basis, especially during winter. They use to wear orange outfits but now don new green with yellow trimming sand look the part. You can see each woman has a different tool. Going from left to right one has a scrapper and a cone, the next just a scrapper, then a rubbish box collector and finally a twig sweeper, every household has one of these. These are best for sweeping leaves up.
