Salo - Redux
A couple months ago, I blogged about salo. To illustrate what it was, i showed a picture of it in form that is a bit nicer than what you usually encounter. Above is salo as you get it in the market. Au natural, if you will. You can just taste the fatbacky goodness! This was bought so that the future Mrs. Connard could render some lard from it. Yum Yum.
Side note: the market this was purchased at (The Seeney Rynok - Hay market in english) is right down the street from me, I can walk there in about 5-10 minutes. Word is that this market is going to be shut down. Why? Apparently the land and building that comprise the market was sold to the son of the current mayor of Kiev, in what I'm sure was an entirely transparent and legitimate deal. He plans to turn it into a concert venue of some sort. No locals are happy about this development. And a few have cynically noted to me that the mayor will probably be able to get away with this as he supported the Orange protesters on Kreshatik and Maidan.
