Photographer's Note

Tiraspol is the capital city of Transdinestr. It's a breakaway region of Moldova that has unilaterally declared independence but it is not recognised by anyone else. But they do have their own army, police force and currency. They also use a different language to the rest of the country, preferring to speak Russian rather than Moldovan.

The stall you see here is a common sight in Tiraspol. It is a street vendor for beer. Weary shoppers queue up for a quick glass. The writing on the top of the stall is in cyrillic script and says PIVO (pronounced peeva) and is Russian for beer. It's a warm day and the lady is clearly doing a roaring trade.
