Reason #1: Food is CHEAP!
Just a few minutes ago, a fruit truck pulled up to our door loaded with all kinds of fruit: apples, bananas, grapefruit, mandarin oranges, papaya... it's like having the farmer's market right at your door step! I love it!
I splurged and bought 6 bananas and 13 mandarin oranges for a whole 4 bs (.57)! The thing I don't understand is when they give you the prices the quantities are always huge. I mean who can eat 25 bananas before they go bad? They always look at me a little shocked when I just ask for half a dozen.
