Our first food purchase. We have been in the country for six days and the only food we have purchased is McDonalds (note: this is not the only food we have eaten; our host has been keeping us well fed on Egyptian food).
We walked for an hour with no luck. We returned to the hotel empty-handed. Brice suggested another street. We found a small one room food store. We praised God.
On the menu for tonight:
1 jar of Nutella
1 jar of Apricot jam (we passed on the tomato jam…)
2 bags of hot dog buns labeled as “soft rolls”
1 carton of apple juice
1 bag of Egyptian home-made flat bread
and 1 bottle of dish-cleaning detergent to scrub or new home with
We spent $8.39.
We are success stories.
