Photo of the Day (5/11/06)

This photo really sums up so much of the former Soviet Empire for me. No matter where I traveled, even within big cities like Moscow, I’d inevitably come across some poor farmer’s Volga or Niva stuff to the brim with onions, melons, potatoes, or in this case, cabbage.

Our friend carpetblogger, who contributed this photo to our Flickr Gadling pool, doesn’t mention where it was taken, but judging by the AZ on the license plate, I’m going to have to guess Azerbaijan.
