In a different country
Even a supermarket
Is full of surprises.

We're wandering around the Waitrose supermarket in Salisbury, marveling at all the differences between what we know and this. Different foods differently packaged, the prices, the shop layout, the trollies themselves -- all of it is fascinating. The staff wandering the store keep glancing over -- it could be we're enjoying ourselves too much! We're thinking -- we'd pay money for a ride this interesting at the local fair. It's a reminder of how all the world is like this, always -- we just don't see it. We become too familiar with things, losing the joy and excitement of shape, colour, touch. Travel certainly brings it all back to life, though, like a magic eye picture, in stunning 3D.
