Time-capsule “Komissionka”

A nearly untouched by time consignment store found at Preobrazhensky val 25, next to a church or a monastery with a large “Иконописная мастерская” (icon-painting shop) sign.

What a pattern. Things I like appear to aggregate around religious establishments, which I don’t like. Yes, there is a story why but it is beyond the scope of this Uncle Pasha’s Moscow project. 

Free range eggs at the Fish Market

Рыбный рынок (rybny rynok, fish market), Pyatnitsky pereulov 2. Look for Elena the butcher under the sign “Деревенское мясо” (derevenskoye myaso, village meat). Small eggs from young chicken at 100 roubles per 10.

Next to her is a stall with Ukrainian (Lviv) and Belarus beer but I think I’ve already listed it.

Separating garbage

separate_garbage_collectinAbout one question about it per year, and I’m glad to finally be able to give a positive answer. I’ve seen these signs before but this is the first time in Moscow I’ve encountered a functional unit for sorting garbage. The corner of Novokuznetskaya and Klimentovsky. What’s more, the writing says it is some sort of a civic initiative.
