Adventures in a Chinese supermarket

I never make a trip to the United States without visiting a supermarket. To me they are more fascinating than any fashion salon.

A person buying ordinary products in a supermarket is in touch with his deepest emotions.

Soy Sauce at The Wu

I love foreign supermarkets. Forget national monuments, you want to get a real insight into a foreign culture, check out where the locals buy their toilet paper.

There are two supermarkets near our apartment. The noodle and soy sauce asiles above are from the huge and weird Wu Mart (“The Wu”), which is a massive supermarket downstairs (think Coles) and a shop upstairs, selling everything from bikes to thermal underwear (think K-Mart).
