Juxtaposition


On the left is the village veterinary pharmacy with stocks made of pipe to hold a donkey, horse, cow, or mule steady for treatment. It was closed in the heat of the Ramadan afternoon. Right next door is, somehow appropriately I suppose, a butcher shop. It is open for business with housewives coming in for pieces of meat for the preparation of iftar.

That's really funny that they are next door to each other. I think I would buy meat from another butcher shop:)

If I were a donkey or horse or mule I'd think twice about going in those stocks!
