The rain


A small downpour sends everyone looking for plastic sheets to hang over their stands. The  vendors tie their string to the metal pole at the entrance of the restaurant.

Suddenly we are connected to everyone around, becoming part of this small social network.

Some of them will come to eat at the restaurant like this pensive looking girl who worked at the garlic stand across the street and came almost everyday.

Or our close neighbors, a family who runs a small pepper and herb stall right in front of the restaurant’s kitchen . They make different kinds of pepper and garlic paste.

The restaurant is next to a busy street. On one side we find vendors selling yellow carrots

and red rice .

They are, with lamb, the main ingredients for plov.

The other side of the street leads to the vegetables and fruits market.

The produce are similar to what we could find in a mediterranean market.
