Eating Out

35 photographs of outdoor eating - around the world:

All pressed up against his cheeks...

"Enjoying a watermelon at the bazaar in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, 400 kilometers east of the capital, Riyadh, on May 16, 2008."

"A Palestinian man sells fresh-squeezed orange juice in the refugee camp of Beddawi in the ancient coastal city of Tripoli, north of Beirut, on Aug. 17, 2010."

"Nepalese vendors wait for customers at a vegetable market outside Kathmandu on Feb. 16."

The one above reminds me of our Italian Market down on 9th Street (in Philadelphia, shown below). It's thought to be the oldest outdoor market of its size in the US. Of course, not many structures here are as old as those in Asia, but these row houses, as we call them, in South Philly probably date back to colonial times.
