This is the method how Meat is delivered, Dina? The car with the freezer is not far away, right?

Wow! My neck protests just looking at him.

Dina said...

Karl, amazing, eh? The big meat truck had to park (actually, double-park) out on busy Agripas Street and the man made a few trips on foot to a butcher shop inside the market place. Just a minute or two to walk. It was my first time to see this!

It must be heavy! Totally new for me.

Gracious! I hope he has something protecting his head from the meat or he could end up smelling. What a photo capture!

People who get their steer as lovely cuts of steak, so often do not realise that it comes from a well hung carcass and can actually be transported by back rather than refrigerated van.
Love your colourful shot Dina.

I live near our market and this is not an uncommon sight in the morning... When I was young I did it a bit myself, but only with frozen meat, working for a ship chandler.

That must be heavy! :-)

Dina, thank you so much for the link you sent me. I really enjoyed the site.

Somehow, "open air meat" was a surprise. I'm glad you explained in answer to Karl's question.
But a very interesting photo, and I read all the other comments, too. I agree about "the everday-ness of your world"!
