Weird and expensive food

Woolies in Balmain

Woolies in Balmain

Our last outing on Day 1 took us to the supermarket. The supermarket was in fact a Woolworths! Yes, in Australia ‘Woolies’ is alive and well, and in the grocery businees. It’s one of the big 2 supermarket chains. The other one is called Coles. Balmain is blessed with a mid-sized Woolies, but no Coles, so Woolies it was.

The first thing we noticed was that the food is pretty expensive! Better stop converting to pounds pretty soon. Secondly – they’ve got all funny brands (from our point of view), and funny sizes (also from our point of view). It’s like being in a foreign country.
