This old lady is a Babushka and she sits on the cold floor or squats inserting her papers every week. Back breaking work.
This guy below was at the distribution center very early this morning. We could not tell that he did anything except look very Russian. Arms were folded forever and his warm cap, typically Russian appeared to keep him warm. Our translator had not arrived but I thought this guy very expressive so with sign language, asked if I could take his photo. He was good with that but then

followed me around watching what I did and where I went.

This lady is known as a "Babushka" a street sales person. Notice the folks sitting on the stone floor inserting and organizing their papers to take out into the rainy, snowy day. NO tables...she is young and many of the Babushkas are in their late 70s and 80s.

This system begins around 4 a.m. every Thursday. There is no daily paper here in this country...only weeklies.
