Water from a nearby waterfall, directly behind the camera, is routed to public washing facilities in a clever arrangement of microcanals. I'm completely fascinated with the hydraulics of this sytem, as it ensures constant water in the face of changing input. For example, note how the water first flows into a holding area (in the foreground), which drains all excess water off to the left using a sort of miniature dam. Ingenious. A close examination of the actual washing bins is equally fascinating.
