16. Fishies in pieces

As you might suspect, I really like fish. Considering the place I am from, that is as far from any sea or ocean as it gets and the fact that for about the first 30 years of my life I did not know any other fish than carp made as gefillte fish and mayonnaise salad with cod, it is quite surprising. Or maybe that's exactly why.
