Soap shop

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 30 June 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

One of the summer events in Turku is a Medieval Market. From that link for more information. Figure soap is prepared by boiling the old method and animal fats. In basket in the foreground parts of the body must be cooked.

@Nigel: It was sunny day. We have not had very many sunny days in this summer. Fortunately snow has rained only once in Lapland. Now can also there enjoy summery weather.

Great shot. Soap that's been made of different animal parts sounds horrible!

@ursulakatariina: Thank you. It's a great, etc, you know. I do not know what else they can use to manufacture. It is added to all kinds of cool stuff, such as the scent of a flower, or even if the turf. That's an old method. Among the new soap I do not know what the substances in the flavors mix.
