Going to an American military base after being submerged in a completely different culture for the past seven months is a surreal experience. It looks like America, sounds and smells like America, it is full of Americans...because it is America! It was shocking. So what did this American girl do? I glided through the store in a consumerism haze gingerly touching cans of Frank's Pork and Beans and glossy, pillowy packages of Chips Ahoy - delicious American brands! Was that a pyramid display of Easy Cheese? Gorgeous!
Naturally, I bought a ton of peanut butter and hot sauce. Mmm...delicious Skippy and Louisiana Hot Sauce. I might eat them together...
Funny thing is that I don't even like Frank's, Chips Ahoy, or whatever the hell Easy Cheese is; I just really missed seeing it.
Thank you Mo for taking me back home for the afternoon!
