Bon appetit / Jätku leiba

It's kind of tricky to translate the title of this photo to english. In estonian we always say "Jätku leiba", when we join the table; this is wish from old times, meaning "let us always have bread".

With your translation I understand that it is a particularely good title.
"Always" maybe not but "for a very long time" for sure ;o)

Jatku leiba is a saying close to my heart,my Grandfather and uncles where all bakers,and I earned my pocket money Saturday mornings working in the bakery,I still make most of our bread at home..Thanks Vaido, your terrific shot really brought the past back to life for me.

@Jeff: Thanks for this recollection, Jeff! It reminded me, that I should make photo of bread-making at home, too :)

Bustling Cairo... an experience in itself. I think most cultures say something at meal time :) Cool shot.

What amuses me about this is that no-one is taking any notice of such (to us) an extraordinary scene !

A great scene with that load of bread. A very appropriate Estonian title.
