Up and down the food chain

The Oriental Supermarket in Bayswater is where we buy "oriental" foodstuffs. Daun limau purut (frozen), serai, sawi, lengkuas, bihun, tempe (frozen) and if we want, kelapa parut (preserved and frozen, ick), whole fish and seafood (frozen with some preservatives too, ick), dan sebagainya.

We dropped by there Saturday afternoon. I took pictures.

One crab left

One packet left of frog legs.
I wonder if these were wild frogs or farm-bred ones, if frog farms exist?

£2 can get you one baby chicken at Al-Farawlah (another grocery store)

 Whole frozen durians.

Now I need to do some serious laptop research for an essay about Tel Aviv (I don't even know yet which aspects of it I'm going to write about!). Also, I found the notes I wrote during last week's Occupied Territories class. I wrote "camel training", which means that trying to form a coalition in the Knesset is like camel training. I just thought that you'd be interested to know that.
