Grocery items remind us of home!

Carolyn.   We are half-way through our 4-week apartment rental in Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.  Our time here is part of our original world plan to stay put in one city per continent, to stop travelling for a while, and "live like a local".

While we were in South America for the first five months of our trip, aisles in grocery stores looked very different from home.  Different is good - it's what this year of travel is about!  Lots of interesting options, especially amazing fruits in the markets, but nothing that was familiar.  To our surprise in Nambia, there are many things in the grocery stores that look the same as in Canada (we guess the same will be true when we get to South Africa - since most of the retail items in Namibia are shipped from there).

Three things I missed over the last 5 months in South America that I am enjoying again:  pretzels, Multi-grain Cheerios, iced tea.
