Driving Around for Groceries

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When foreigners visit or move to the USA one of the things they notice is that Americans drive everywhere. They don’t think twice about jumping into their car and burning a few cents (by now dollars?) to pick something up.

I have noticed that in many other countries, the stores are within walking distance of your home. For example, in my neighborhood in Bogota, there is a small grocery store across the street (not to mention 2 around the corner) as well as the big Exito (similar to Meijers, Rainbow, Cub foods) across the park. Some apartment buildings have the entire ground floor made up of convenience stores, restaurants, clothes cleaners, etc.

Jumping back (while on a short vacation to Ohio) into the way my family does things, I thought it might be novel to post a few photos of shopping in the USA for those readers who aren’t used to it.
