Pics taken last Tuesday at Toledo’s weekly market. In Spain, these markets (“mercadillos”) are where people buy all sorts of day-to-day stuff  – underwear, socks, pots and pans, T-shirts, bags, shoes, snacks, hamsters, you name it. They tend to be cheaper than the shops.

    No way. No WAY that is the right price. Moscow used to have a ton of mercadillos, and there are still a few left, that didnt get absorbed into the ubiquitous shopping malls. Anyway, if you decide you want that…garment…I am sure I can procure it here at a fraction of the cost.

      No idea. The bloody cheek of it was (can’t resist a pun, me) that they were charging €5 for a photograph. I pretended not to understand and didn’t pay. A fiver for a shot at big pants?! Are they nuts??? I don’t mind dropping one or two Euros into the collection box of a street performer who I’m photographing, that’s only fair.
