One of my favourite things to do in a new country is visiting the local supermarket. Seeing the locals go about their day to day lives is the ultimate cultural immersion! But for me it goes beyond that. I find it fascinating to browse the aisles in search for wacky and weird or simply new and interesting foods/drinks that you can’t find anywhere else in the world.
