Our friend Jessica gave us a recommendation for the less expensive grocery store in town. Nothing makes me feel more like a foreigner than a trip to the Canadian grocery store.
This BBQ sauce is attached to a case of beer.
Most types of butter come in a big block, instead of 4 separate sticks, but you can find both.
Is Balkan yogurt Greek yogurt? I suppose...
The French labels are still novel to me.
I know it only means "strong," but I love the image of a Cheese Fort.
FROmidable! Like fromage! What a creative translation.
Lots of tea, Tetley in odd cannisters.
This sort of makes sense:
But wait, there's more! Inside this Superstore ("Real Canadian!"), which is sort of like a nicer version of Wal-mart, sans the screaming children, there is also a doctor's office,
and a fitness center.
We also went to a store called JYSK. I'm not sure how to pronounce it, but I think it has a soft J.
From what we observed, JSYK is basically the same as Bed Bath & Beyond, but without as much of the Beyond, or all the shelves in the middle of the store.
We also visited a store devoted to storage containers of all kinds, including closets.
"Let us design your closet!"
An entire aisle of chic, feminine lunch boxes.
Stay tuned for a post about next week's orientation activities and my trip - 36 hours in Kansas City (...maybe they'll have some St. Louis Ribs St. Louis).
