Rustavi: At the "Big" Market

My hostess, Nino, and I went to Rustavi's "big marketi" this evening. It is part open farmer's market, part roofed stall market for fish, poultry, beef, pork, spices, cookies, pasta, etc., and part storefront lanes.

Two Azeri-Georgians and their potatoes

 A factory owner asked my hostess what I was doing when he saw me take the photo of the building below, and while my hostess, Nino, explained who I was, what I was doing here, etc., this woman happened to walk by and her curiosity detained her, then resulted in her giving me this loaf of bread!

Frozen fish ... mmmm, frozen, cold, frozen, cold.

More frozen.
