Wellcome shopping extravaganza

Grocery shopping takes on a whole new meaning when you have a fridge the size of a single file drawer , very little storage space, and it’s hotter than Hades outside so walking any distance is not an option. It’s amazing, though, how much you can fit into one shopping bag and how much you can buy here for 370NT ( 12.00 USD)!

3 heads of romaine lettuce
3 Tomatoes
3 Cucumbers
6 lemons (that are probably limes)
Big slice of melon (won’t know what kind it is until I bite into it!)
6 brown eggs
4 cups of cherry non-fat yogurt
package of pineapple cookies
6 slices of wheat bread

      (of course I had to provide my own shopping bag) most of the produce here is locally grown so not everything is available all the time.! there are some really strange and wonderful fruits and veggies (durien and dragon fruit come to mind.) Amazing, huh? The wages here are much lower than most States, hence the lower cost of living.
