We have really enjoyed the variety of foods available here in Nairobi, especially the fresh fruit and veggies (alternate spelling "veges!") It's rare to find rhubarb in Dallas stores, but here it's growing in the yard and available at the store. The green beans are inexpensive and really beautiful.
Black beans look a bit different from those at home, in a fun way (kinda like mini-Oreos). Don't get me started on Oreos. That's another post.
Also different are the larger than usual "Texas-sized" items. Maybe I should say "Africa-sized." Here is a 1.5 kilo loaf of bread, or almost 3 1/2 lbs.
We can make a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich for a hungry person with this! That slice is about 5"x5.5".
There are some other items not often found in a U.S. supermarket, such as rabbit meat, camel milk, and canned tuna with sweet corn! Corn turns up in unusual places, like on pizza! What have we not been able to find? Hamburger dill pickles. Apparently there is a Subway not far away. If we get desperate we may have to make a trip.
