A stitch up?!
|Our little visitor!|
Other things that appear in the pharmacy are ‘savonier’, which are a strange nut-looking food. You take the shell off and inside is a stone covered with a sweet-ish thick substance. You suck the stone until none of the thick substance is left and throw the stone away. It tastes kind of sweet, it’s an odd taste really. Elisabeth told me that if you eat too many ‘ils sont comme bisacodyl’ – ‘they are like bisacodyl’ (a laxative!). Useful to know!!!
It’s good to document these now-seemingly normal occurrences, as it’s not until I think about them that I realise exactly how different life can be here sometimes. When you’re living it day-to-day it becomes standard!
