turning food shopping into a big deal
Getting a bit worried that I am only writing about (and from the inside of) my new flat - my excuse being a combination of being very busy at work, and the excitement of so many local comings and goings.
I did go out last weekend, trying out one of my standard methods for exploring new places - randomly getting on public transport and finding out what happens at the end of the line. The 24 tram this time, to Novogireevo (pretty ordinary). But really, I was just trying to find a decent cheap supermarket, of which there seems to be a serious dearth around my new location. I did find an okay open-air market en route, but still had to lug my shopping back a considerable way. So, then on Sunday I ended up taking a 2 hour walk - again in search of such a supermarket - this time leading inexorably back to the two good, cheap(ish) food shops near my old flat. Followed by another long walk back with bags.
