The Grocery Shopping Took a Long Time Because... Why?
As I've written before, grocery shopping here can be quite a long ordeal... The other day I managed to hit Globus Gourmet on the Arbat for cheddar, the covered market for vegetables and fruit, Azbuka Vkusa for meat and parmesan, and Ramstore for dairy, bread, household goods, juice and drinking water. All in 3 and a half hours! I even managed to find a spot to park near the one Starbucks that was kind-of along the route!
I was rather proud to have been so efficient. As I left Ramstore, my last stop, I thought I'd be right home--and then these guys showed up. They blocked the exit for about five minutes and I joined the other old ladies and moms who were too afraid to leave. They looked more like wolves than dogs... and they had teeth. They finally got bored and walked away. (The numerous security guards must have been too busy smoking to help us out).
Good zoom lense on my camera, huh?
