  Street-side smoked fish stalls along Lake Baikal
by swesn

A popular snack around Lake Baikal is the smoked fish.

They are smelly but taste really good. The fish is usually wrapped in newspapers. On some train-stops, vendors can be seen holding out a 'bouquet' of newspapers with smoked fish clasped inside.
