Today we (NSLI-Y) girls went shopping! We needed a break and some people were going through culture shock, so we figured that the mall would be a good place to go. It was so much fun and I got to buy some new clothes, get a bunch of things I’ve been needing at Carrefour, have frozen yogurt, and hang out with my friends. The best part was finding BERRIES!!!! I’ve been missing berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries) so much and everyone has told me that you cannot buy them here. Ladies and gentlemen, they are WRONG! In a little corner of Carrefour, there is a shelf with berries!!! Liz and I almost walked by it, but then I stopped to check. I think we almost had a heart attack and spent a while looking at the berries with immense happiness. I think people were a bit concerned about us or thought we were crazy. Well, I’m used to that anyway; anytime I go to Carrefour or Lulu, I get a slightly crazed look in my eyes as I hurry to try to find everything that I’ve been needing.
It was a fun evening. Besides, where else would you be where they sell kumas in the mall and you can run into the people who did your nails for a photoshoot?
