When I first saw our new apartment here in Argentina...there were no decorations in the kitchen and only one chipped vase with some artificial springy flowers in them in the living room. I knew I wanted to decorate a little in my kitchen, but didn't want to buy a bunch of things that I'd have to give away in just 4 1/2 months. So, after our first day out in the city of Buenos Aires on Friday, I decided that I would use FOOD to decorate my kitchen. It is inexpensive and we can use it up before we leave. =D
Like I mentioned earlier hard crusty breads, cheeses, olives, hot teas, hot coffees, etc. are a big part of this culture.
~So...in a tiny grocery store we dug in a big open bin and found some hard loaves of bread. I was wanting a basket to put them in, but on a Saturday night none were available. In that same tiny groc. store we saw this neat old wooden box in the veggie section...and asked if we could buy it. They sold it to us for a couple bucks...but I would have loved to have heard their conversation after we left, for I know they couldn't figure us Americans out! =)
