Whose 'trolley' is that?
Matt surprised me the other day when he strolled into the apartment pushing a shopping cart from the local grocery store (they call them 'trolleys' here). People grocery shop here much like they do in Europe, meaning they go almost everyday to collect fresh fruit, bread, and milk. We just can't kick our American ways ie. we need cereal for two weeks and buy enough frozen pizzas to get us through next weekend!
Apparently they felt so bad that Matt was going to truck all these bags home himself, that they let him take a shopping cart, which he happily wheeled through the lobby of our building, up the elevator 28 floors and into our apartment!
