Funny Frenchities

I haven't been here that long, but there are certainly some things the French do that are strange for someone coming from Australia. One is their complete lack of supermarkets. In my little village of Gif, there are 5 different banks, a florist, a travel agent, an insurance agent, about 7 restaurants, 2 butchers, a seafood place, a post office, but no supermarket! I think that is the real key to why French people are skinny, they can't buy any food! The seafood place is a bit gross though, they just stick all the fish on ice and then leave it out in the open so all the flies and stuff can crawl over it. It smells really fishy there too, which I don't think is a good sign

Today I managed to find a supermarket in another village though, which was a massive relief, I thought I was going to starve! There I found these pizza crackers which I assumed would be similar to pizza shapes, you know taste salty and have no real relation to actual pizza, but when I opened the box they looked like actual little pizzas with cheese and everything!

Ooooh, it's like when they zoom in on the ads and they are actually little pizzas with tiny Italian chefs on them.

Don't eat them if you hear screaming.

Hey Annabel. Looks like you are fitting in fine... and it also looks like I'll be visiting you in September. Hope you are keen for some big nights during the world cup... you are going to have to drink Cormac under the table!

Sounds good, though I'm not sure about drinking Cormac under the table. I don't have the same solid Irish genes as him
