What a different world… It makes me realise just how sanitised we’ve become… if my meat falls on the (relatively clean kitchen) floor, it goes straight to the dog, and if I forget to put the dogfood in the fridge for half an hour, it goes in the bin… Excellent travel photography, Peter!
Very different world. Methinks you might be a trifle too fussy :-) Dogs are quite used to eating meat which has been out all day. If meat falls on the floor you really only need to wash it and any bacteria are killed during cooking, especially long cooking – unless you like your meat underdone :-) Proof is in the photo :-)

Excellent shot and comments. I remember no refrigeration, fly-blown meat and washing it before use in north east Victoria.
Thanks Fred. Ah yes the days of no refrigeration and fly-blown meat and surprisingly nobody got sick because of it either :-)

Wow thanks E.R.
Excellent work Peter,it shows how far we are removed in our western world from reality and hardship
Thanks Hans. It sure does!
I stayed in a place in Dakha in Bangladesh over the road from the meat market this reminds me of the smell , the drone of the flies , the dust and the sound of the street hawkers . . . . I had forgotten about the scales though :-) Cecily
Thanks Cecily. There wasn’t much dust here being on a side street and no smell. The flies had to contend with a hand held fan :-)
