The Cheese Lady of Abkhazia

Visiting the Central Market in Sukhum, the capital of the partially recognized state of Abkhazia, greatly exceeded my expectations. What I anticipated would be a rather decrepit, emply place with a few fruit and vegatable stalls, revealed itself to be a vibrant bazaar of all things fresh. Among all of the vendors I came across, this woman in particular, selling homemade cheese, really captured my attention. I shall remember her forever as the Cheese Lady of Abkhazia.
