Self-service flower shop/Цветочный магазин на самообслуживании

There are flowers growing in the field. Need some flowers? Cut as many as you like, pay according to the chart. All by yourself.

В чистом поле растут цветы. Надо цветов? Срезайте какие нравятся, платите по прейскуранту. Все самостоятельно.

German festival foods/Праздничная немецкая еда

When people get together, then the most interesting thing, besides conversation, is food. Drinks are the same everywhere, wine and beer, just the brands are different. But the food is interesting.

Когда собирается народ что-нибудь отпраздновать, то самое интересное -- еда. Алкоголь везде одинаковый: пиво, вино... только сорта отличаются. А вот на еду стоить обратить внимание.

This is some sort of pizza on a thin crust.

Это такая пицца на тонком слое теста.




Salmon

Лосось



And a slice of apple pie for desert.

И на десерт -- яблочный пирог.

Other places may have something different, this is mostly region-specific, so there are other specialties in other areas of Germany.

В других областях Германии есть другие виды праздничных яств.

Exquisite foods at your fingertips/Изысканные яства в широком доступе

Some sandwiches with caviar cost quite a lot!

Черная икра стоит недешево! Хотя жителей некоторых районов России черной икрой не удивить.
