Ahhhh! ... Food!
I spend lots of time these days in various supermarkets and grocery stores. The shops are so packed full of goods you can barely fit through the aisles in some shops. There's quite a lot of variety too. Sure beats the old days when the men had to stand in line at the Jamia and the women sat for hours picking bugs out of bad rice. Nice to have a choice... but Ramadan is costing us a fortune in food. We've been spending at least 10 dinars a day just for vegetables and fruit. The lure to spend more is there... waiting in the shops.
