Thanks to everyone who was praying for my travels to Switzerland. I had a wonderful journey with nothing remarkable to note, well aside from having nobody occupying the seats next to me. Yes, I was spoiled the entire time. God was so generous.
Today was my first full day in Switzerland, and I spent part of the day going grocery shopping, a noteworthy event, in my opinion. Here are a few of my discoveries:
Swiss milk comes in boxes, which you won’t find in the refrigerated section. No, you’ll find it on a shelf, right next the eggs, which also aren’t refrigerated.
These eggs have been hard boiled and decorated with special colors. My friend called them “picnic eggs,” which I guess means that they are something you’d take on a picnic. Mmmm, non-refrigerated, colorful, hard boiled eggs. Oh look, some even look like the Swiss flag.
While the milk and eggs threw me for a loop, I’ve got to say that I’m 100% in favor of their chocolate selection. Let’s just say that chocolate got more attention in the store than anything else, except for the produce. Yes, chocolate is a grocery staple. You’ll find it right next to the bread. God bless the Swiss.
