Grocery shopping can easily be an all day activity for us.
The store in the photo on the left is where we buy most of our veggies, water, and eggs. A very woman in an apron always helps me with the Spanish words for the veggies.
If she doesn’t have what we need we go across the street to the man with long sideburns. He also has eggs, some packaged goods, and veggies. Sometimes for a change I go to the nice older couple. They have a bakery but also eggs, veggies and two pet parrots. No matter who I go to, the eggs are never refrigerated, always come wrapped in paper, and they all think it’s hysterical we’re using the eggs for breakfast.
Next stop is the butcher for meat, cheese and also sometimes eggs.
Milk and yogurt come in cartons and boxes, but also bags.
The yerba mate aisle is huge. This entire aisle – all the way to the end- is for yerba mate.
The most beautiful part of the grocery store is the shelf after shelf of dulce de leche.
You can even get a one pound bag of dulce de leche.
Then there are the products that make us uncomfortable, like this brand of rice/pasta.
And then there are the products that make us laugh because we’re immature.
And then there is this mannequin. This is not in a supermarket, but I still think it’s funny and slightly frightening.
