Not Kosher

EPSN1061, originally uploaded by efroymson.

After the reconquista and 1492 it seems that the Spanish were quite determined to eliminate any traces of Islamic or Jewish culture. Or maybe they just really like the taste of pork. In either case, there are pig carcasses all over this city.

This was one of the few with the pigs face visible, usually it is just the leg and buttock of the animal hanging from the ceiling. I had to open the little door to the display fridge to get a picture untainted by reflections, and the woman in the store told me not to do that, so I hope you enjoy this photo, so my misdeed can be in some way compensated for.
