They’re usually sent to I’ll be able to estimate my cost of living after a few months here. Until then, and because this blog needs photos, the details of my visit to the market yesterday, converted from Euros and metric.


Sandwich Ham – 7 oz @ $.84
FRESH, juicy Strawberries – 1 lb 2 oz @ $1.80
Broccoli – 15 oz @ $1.42
Tangerines – 1 lb 3 oz @ $1.12
100% OJ – 1 qt 2 oz @ $1.51


Took this photo after the strawberries reminded me of Jar Jar Binks. Seriously.
