Dubai Post 3: The First Grocery Shopping Experience

Walking into the supermarket felt like I was back at Treasure Island (though I wish I could say Whole Foods). They had many American brands including Rice Krispies, Coke, Ritz Crackers etc. The fruit was also fresh and cheap. I ended up getting out of there having spent 100AED which amounts to $27. The cost of my groceries is what I would expect to pay in America so it is nice to know that food is not too pricey here.

Walking back to the hotel is when you can really see all the buildings glowing with light- it really is amazing. On another interesting culture note, I've noticed the Dubai cab drivers love to play American music. This was evident as I got into a car with the cab driver blaring America's top pop song, “Call Me Maybe”.
