I love foreign grocery stores - shopping in them is like another form of sightseeing and cultural exploration. Yesterday on my walk I discovered a grocery store just a couple blocks from the hotel, so off we went to load up on broccolli, lettuce, carrots, cereal (I thought it was wheat flakes but it ended up being rice:-), milk, coffee, apples and oranges, etc. The store was 100% utilitarian, with rack shelving and fluorescent lighting.
Then we picked up bowls and utensils (spoons are cheap, but butter knives get a premium for some reason) in the kitchen supply stores that line the street just south of our hotel.
Back at the room, a feast! I pretended the rice flakes were wheat flakes, topped them with strawberries...oops looks we got whole milk. Steve made a huge ham and cheese sandwich. Can't wait to have broccoli for dinner!
