kinshasa supermarket

the supermarket i used to go to is gone. but the big fancy chain supermarket is still there...sorta. it is now rather empty and one of the creepiest places in kinshasa. half of it is totally dark, weirder than the LIDL in Berlin. i'm waiting for zombies to crawl out of the ceiling tiles and chase after me under the flickering neon lights.
the wine section is interesting, dusty bottles with brown rotting labels, none of them younger than 1992. i guess that's a good thing? what about white wine? i bought a 1991 reisling for a dinner party...i think we'll make sangria.
the frozen food and cheese section are a bit of a disappointment.
