Looks like grandma made the @kidsisters very happy... I'm surprised to hear about the lack of variety with fruit and vegetables in that neck of the woods... seems the opposite should be the norm? It's weird that prices are so high too!
It's amazing how different a place with basically the same weather and conditions as Cambodia can be. It's the western way of life, as long as people here have gas in their car, some ice cold Coca-Cola, frozen chicken, and a little rice, they're as happy as can be. Any random Cambodian granny veg seller at any random market anywhere in Cambodia is within arm's reach of more variety than all of the markets all across Suriname.
The Haitians have already left Suriname, they were the ones at the Texas border. Unfortunately they were the ones doing the lion's share of the agricultural work here, and the food chain has been broken ever since. My upstairs Cuban neighbor wants to return to her country as well, she says her life was better and more affordable there.
