Went shopping again….in Russia.

Actually I shop a lot in Russia. Been here for 10 years and more and have bought a bunch of stuff. Then again, I have been called a liar as many times as I shop in Russia. People from the west, just do not get that they are being fed propaganda and all that is said about Russia is simply not true…

Last lying article, below…

What does a 1000 rubles buy?

I had a bunch of people call me a liar and this time I kept the receipt. I am still using the stuff from last time, about 9 days ago and included the receipt to show what I buy. Hope to get nine more days from this batch…

I had beets from the last time and this time I bought some carrots and chicken wings. I will make a borscht tonight for us American and Russian. The most favorite/best soup in the world…

955.50 rubles is at this very moment = $17.094

I did buy extra in the fact I bought some calamari (dried) for me and two bags of candy for the sweet tooth when it pops up. Other than that, I bought staples that will allow me to create dishes for the two of us and I will try to make it last many days if possible…

I am kinda a pig at times and eat too much… 😉 Svetochka and Boza though are light eaters…

This is what I see and yes blurry fits, for there just is too many items to pick from… 🙂

What I find most interesting is that Americans are so brainwashed that they refuse to understand that Russia is doing very well. The stores are full of Russia made items. Very little from western countries and China, Turkey and South American countries make up the brunt of what Russia does not make. Things like bananas are cheap and plentiful. Russians love bananas….me too…

So again a 1000 rubles buys a week or more of delicious foods to prepare…If you disagree? That is okay, for I live the Russian life and I know what is going on around me…

Oh and the squid is gone already. Yummy and more yummy. It is a Chinese product and oh so good… 45 rubles to spoil myself, you know for walking to the store and back!

On delicious and dirt cheap item are a Ritz like cracker. 125 grams for 9 rubles. Oh they are sooooo good. and they cost just .161 cents a pack. Talk about a great soup cracker, Russian made by the way…

I gotta go…. time to make borscht…
