I get a lot of questions about the food we eat here. Honestly, we mainly eat Haitian food. Because 1) It's good and 2) It's cheap!
I go to an "American style" grocery store about twice a month. I usually spend around $50 and get 2-3 grocery bags worth of food for that price. Makes me long for Krogers and Walmart! I do miss American food so I splurge and make it once or twice a week.
Here are some pictures I took at the grocery store here.
The exchange rate varies a little day to day but it is around 40 Haitian gourdes to $1 US.
Price 2,019 gourdes
yep for strawberries...this is why Odessa has never tasted them!
Price $ 12.10
Now saving the foil from the restaurant doesn't seem so silly does it?
There you have it. And by the way...no couponing, weekly sales, freezer stock-up, etc....ever!
Who knew living in a third world country would be so expensive?
