“To begin gathering interviews for the report we walked down to the row of meat shops near the vegetable market, below the lower road where the bloody carcasses that hung in the windows would make even the most devoted carnivore commit to tofu and kale forever. They looked like Upton Sinclair’s nightmare incarnate., flesh dangling, flies swarming, the occasional stray dog panting and drooling nearby.”

Always interesting to hear the description of a meat market in other countries, it is so foreign to the sanitary grocery stores we are familiar with.
