Zelyony Bazaar - the 'green" market: Cheap caviar

by TheWanderingCamel

Helpfulness

Seeing caviar, so outrageously expensive in the west, for sale in Almaty just on a market stall is a quite a surprise. Some of it is commercially packaged in glass jars and tins of varying sizes, Sevruga, Beluga, all very reasonably priced It makes a wonderful gift -if your home country allows its importation. Not everywhere does, some countries observe a very strict interpretation of the CITES treaty.

What to buy: If you intend to eat your caviar immediately, you can buy it "fresh", by weight and packed into a plastic takeaway box. Now all you need is some good bread, sour cream and chopped hard-boiled egg - a feast for a king at about the cost of a burger back home.

What to pay: $3-4 dollars will buy you a good-sized snack portion of the stuff - about $200 worth in Europe.

Irrigation-what is it and why is it causing a problem in kazakhstan

From wikipedia: "Irrigation" is an artificial application of water to the soil.
The problem must be the Aral Sea shrinkage.
The Aral Sea lost 90% of its volume within a few decades due to the intense irrigation of cotton and rice fields in Central Asia since 1960s.
