Gumbo's Pic of the Day, July 9, 2014: Human Vending Carts



Every city has typical street food and vendors—New York's hot dogs and souvlaki, Philadelphia's pretzels, Amsterdam's herring—but Berlin, like Vienna, specializes in sausages, especially currywurst, a bratwurst slathered in curry-flavored ketchup.


But perhaps what sets Berlin apart is that in many crowded areas, they've kept the umbrella and the heating element, but dispensed with the cart. These vendors at Alexanderplatz, one of Berlin's major intersections and stations, carry the whole apparatus on their backs.
