On The Free Market
It's not that I always sell Jazz.Ru magazines myself, along with writing for it, editing it, and publishing it. No. But we only have one salesperson who works for us at all major jazz festivals in Moscow area. And when he needed a lunch during two-day Usadba.Jazz Festival (Manor.Jazz, literally) in a beautiful 18th century manor 10 miles off Moscow city limits in early June, I just sent him to have lunch, and sat at our magazine stand myself. I have sold 390 roubles worth of magazines (around 13 U.S. dollars) by the time he returned twenty minutes later, and our photograpler, Vladimir Korobitsyn, made this shot while I was counting the money.
