Fresh fish

A common view (for now) back in Espinho, the Portuguese city where I come from: traditional fishwives selling locally-caught, fresh fish.

_MG_1277-2Back in the days you’d often see these women (and they’re all women) balancing wicker baskets on their heads and crying out how fresh and local the fish was. These two ladies look like they’re moving on from that – they have a little cart and I suspect the temperature-controlled bags and styro on the floor are part of their kit too.
