There is not a care in the world for what the plastic bags are doing to the environment - every where I go they are more than happy to give out bags. I just dont see anyone carrying cloth bags. I had myself quite the adventure walking through the grocery store. Lots of common brands like Lays, Coke, Triscuit, Nestle (like my favorite noodles, Maggi!). What's fun is that each of the regular brands has a twist. Check out the seaweed Pringles and shrimp Pringles!
Granny Smith apples are called US apples. Lots of fresh fruit, including the Dragon fruit!
Insides of the dragon fruit. It's bland in taste, unfortunately, for something so pretty.
And the teeny quail eggs are right beside the regular eggs.
The stores are not big (no Costco, no Safeway, King Soopers even). They are all small, efficient stores, slightly bigger than 7Elevens. Makes sense I guess, since most people dont even have cars and use the trains.
I bought me a couple of huge guavas, ramen noodles, bandaids (blisters from walking a lot), and conditioner to tame the pouffy, humidity-saturated hair.
