One of the Belorussian oddities are these fruit/veggie stands, conveniently located near the bus stops. Unsurprisingly that places every single one of them right next to a grocery store. Prices are usually the same, and they seldom sell anything that’s fresher or better than what you get from the store in any way. I guess some people just prefer the rustic presentation.

…But it’s raining cats and dogs, and the locals are in no hurry to get their daily dose of diarrhea. Business isn’t just slow, it’s catatonic.

PS: I’ve set up a Livejournal account to automagically crosspost Daily photos. You can find it here (bugs to be squashed within a few days). What other social networks should I crosspost to?
