Groceries are cheap here. Dirt Cheap. However, if you can't divide by 7 in your head, you might still come up short at the checkstand. Or so I hear. What's really awesome is when all the store employees (who I could be seeing again in my lecture at 9am tomorrow?) gather around the register to watch the stupid American sort through her bags to remove the high ticket items (shampoo, R15. french press, R49. cottage cheese, R8.)
The good news: There are three groceries on the main road through Rondebosch. I never have to go back to the first one.
((Note to self: Go ahead and just count your basket in Rand instead of trying to covert each item to dollars and then add them up in dollars and then convert them back to Rand.))
