We went to Auchan (the hypermarket) again a couple weeks ago. This time, Jeremy took a photo (unfortunately, he missed the roller blader whizzing down the aisles). Immediately after he snapped it, he was accosted by a security guard (yes, a security guard in Russia's version of Super-Walmart) who told him photos weren't allowed. A throwback to Soviet times when photos of just about anything were considered a security threat. Anyway, Jeremy had already gotten the photo, so here you go:
Those are checkout aisles on the right, as far as the eye can see. This was quite a light day - the first time I went, I spent 30 minutes in line.
