Senta Photos 3

Viewed from the bridge over the Reka Tisa, this is one of the sets of grain silos in Senta. This one has a flour mill, Zitopronet Mlin (the same as Dover Mills on the waterfront in southend Halifax). The other set of grain silos is in the industrial park. I don't know if they're attached to another operation or unto themselves.

This is a sugar beet in my hand: rubbery, mealy, white flesh. It's one that bounced of a loaded high trailer behind a tractor. In Austria and elsewhere they make a wicked rum from the sugar beet, but here it's primarily a source of sugar and raw molasses.

Alltech-Fermin is one of the largest companies in Senta. An American-run manufacturer of yeast-based products for animal feed and other purposes. They have a series of directional signs to the factory on all the major roads into Senta.

A faded and grafittied Senta sign on the edge of town, as soon as one crosses the reka Tisa from the territory of Choka.

Sugar beets look very different from those that make potty time interesting in my house. I men really! Try explaining beet poop!
