Greeting from Moorea. Todays log is a little about what it is like to live day to day here. Obviously my top priority is food! Well haven't caught any fish and we are now addicted to baguettes so we have to to go to a grocery store every other day just for the bread. We actually have two choices. They are about a 15 minute dingy ride from Diamond Girl. Todays pic is of our favorite market. Why is it our favorite? They both carry about the same thing but the lady that runs this store is sooooo nice we always go here first. The guy at the second always looks so disgusted with what we buy we hate it there. So what's on a typical shopping list? Well today we bought two six packs of Coke, three bags of chips, a couple of cans of tuna, fresh eggs, non refrigerated of course, some rice, some plastic garbage bags, some onions, some cabbage, carrots, butter, some MM's, some type of lunch meat, might be chicken?, might be pork?, it is really hard to tell. Seven, three foot long baguett es!!! And some wine. The selection of meat is VERY limited as in almost no beef or identifiable pork but a pretty good selection of mystery meat. It is all frozen. Nelda did buy some hambergers the other day and found some really good sausages. The baguettes have been the most enjoyable and the pickles have been the worst. Pickles here are small like sweet pickles but taste like a cross between dill and sweet so nobody likes them. The hamberger and sausages are the best. Apparently they use the whole cow or pig in their hamburger/sausages not just the leftovers and it is very lean and delicious. One item we have not been able to purchase since we left Mexico 9 weeks ago is ICE! We have to depend on the freezer for ice and that means we get about 4 cubes per day. We save them for special occasions! Living here is definitely a different lifestyle but if you like baguettes your in heaven.
