Moscow Fruit Market

I found the above picture at Picture is Unrelated, a great place to find photos of things that just don't look right.

Believe it or not, I saw things a lot like this many times in Russia. I only saw two dedicated gas stations in the entire country. Everywhere else that we bought diesel was a tanker truck sitting on the side of the road. Outside of large cities, you either bought fresh food from amateur vendors like our friend above, or you bought food from someone cooking it next to their truck on the side of the road. You didn't ask what meat was in the shashlik, you just ate it.
