Enough to turn you of off meat,bet many people would not have taken this,full marks for having that mind set to do so

author says:

Oh gosh....I ended up meeting this butcher on the street and shaking his hand in greeting. The crowds gathered around us as we chatted. The young man asked if I knew what I had done by shaking his hand. I shook a hand of the lowest caste, the untouchable....HOLY SHIT....one does not do this in this culture. What a world huh?! This scene was really interesting because women were gathered around this butcher as he was slicing, they were there with buckets ready to collect the blood of this animal for consumption. I eat and enjoy blood pudding, so I suppose I could have been there too , with a bucket. Excuse my rambling, just in a chatty mood.

Wow! A brave photo. I might well have hurried on and not turned back. I think I will eat more veggies from now on. Its a challenge because of the content but as an image it catches the eye and gets you talking and thinking. Its not everywhere that meat comes in nice sanitized containers with cling film seals.

author says:

Thank you for those comments and all I can think about are the maggots on this dead flesh.....ooooooooooooops maybe I should not have said that.
