To get gratuitous benefits of civilization, it is necessary not so much
They say that only free cheese is in a mousetrap or even steeper, they say, who does not work shall not eat. Fudge! As found "Today", a lot of services in Kiev can get quite in vain: for example, to eat, haircut, exercise, learn foreign languages and even a massage! Tolerably well you can dine on the market, trying foods, but often in the same traders should not be - an impressive and chase away. And, for example, you can get a haircut at the hairdressers students, but they do not guarantee the quality of service.
These loopholes are often used by students: "Why should I be ashamed? Unless there scholarship will live! Himself from Vinnitsa, and in Kiev and pay hostel need and soak. But there is always: Beat the market - where the sausage, where herring, and where and tangerine try "- says Kievan Alexander Yemets, whom we met near Lukyanovka market.
It turns out that to get gratuitous benefits of civilization, man has to do not so much. First of all, get out of their homes couch, overcome shyness, to show a little imagination and go outside. For everyone "Today" was the map of free services.
FOOD: Feeds Bazaar and the Hare Krishnas. Imagine that you have in your pocket a penny of money. You stand on the street and in the stomach from hunger - a revolution, and in my head, only one thought: "Where to eat ?!". The first thing to do is to ask passers-by, where the nearest market. The most generous people of Kiev called Zhitny market, and we tried it on himself. At the market in the morning bustle. Many buyers, goes live auction. Someone asks to cede the hryvnia, and some five. Solve a colleague meal here lard ahead capturing a piece of black bread. In the meat department - as in the hive. Each seller is trying to sell his own. Just the sight of the customer, traders actively offer goods per sample. This moment you need to quickly use. Ate a piece - and efficiently move around further along the series will deal with merchants. Questions like: "How do salsa?", "How old boar?", "How do you smoked it?" - Very helpful. For some 5-10 minutes we managed to collect 200 grams of fat, however, thin slices. A good-natured vendor Luba from Poltava, hearing that we students told me how fed up six months on the market Physics Volodya. "He's so skinny, pale little, as much afraid. Came once stood for half an hour before the counter, salivating blew, and then he said: "Auntie, let eat." Fed him, I do not mind. Especially when people are asked politely, but not blatant stealing.
So he then every morning on the market comes, I will eat bacon, banana who ask, and where and strawberries or grapes give. Now, had disappeared. Maybe find a job or to the market to come ashamed "- reflects Luba.
After we pulled on fat salty. Oh, and did we naprobovalis cucumbers, carrots and Korean sauerkraut! Already wanted to drink ... In series with pickles sellers do not skimp on food to give a sample of whole spoons. And this is true for those who strictly adheres to the post. Then the experiment we continued on Lukyanovka market. Result - four ate a banana and two kiwi. Honestly, after more fat did not want to! Most readily, by the way, here give a sample of apples, sauerkraut, pickled tomatoes and cucumbers, cheese, sausages and bacon. However, we quickly noticed traders. "Something you guys all try, try, and do not buy anything," - shouted at us woman selling apples. So for those who dare to go in our footsteps, we advise not to go "graze" on the same market constantly. Them in the city, by the way, more than 80, plus food markets on Fridays and Saturdays, which are held in all districts of Kiev.
Supermarket. Another way to eat for free - found in supermarkets in terms of presentation of new products. However, this option is more suitable for dinner weekend - manufacturers rarely spend their weekdays. Here you can eat sausage, cheese, yogurt and chocolates. Promoters working on points, happy to give your product a try, not expecting anything in return. What, when and where you can try, administrators know in supermarkets.
BALL exotics. Perhaps the most satisfying option - to eat at the Center of Vedic culture, which is Zoryane Lane, 16. Every day at 9 am there for breakfast, 13:00 - lunch. A weekend passes "Sunday Feast" - a more lush than on weekdays. Most often, then served rice, porridge, various fruits and traditional Indian spices. In addition, the Hare Krishnas distribute food on the road - every Wednesday at 13:00 on the street Bestuzhev, 32. There can be absolutely free to dial in a jar of cereal, bread and juice to take and eat it all at home. "With this meal to be careful. Our neighbor on the street Belitskaya frequented these feasts. And doped in 70 years, he joined the Hare Krishnas and left the family "- told us Maria V. with Kurenevka.
Free lunches for the homeless, which also can eat, organizes Society of Sant'Egidio every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in different parts of Kiev. Groups of volunteers often distribute food at the hem, the central railway / train station, near metro stations "Darnitsa" and "Forest". Complete meals do not offer, but sandwiches with mayonnaise and sausages you can always eat. Give food not only homeless, but also to anyone who wants. So, going to the volunteers, you can get free delicious sandwich.
