Eat your heart out, Sammy


The commercial grocery store market is pretty big here in Costa Rica. At least it is in San Jose. You find a lot of American-style stores around the city, selling American stuff alongside local goods. And I learned that not too long ago, a little company called Wal-Mart Stores Incorporated bought out Hiper Mas, a big chain in Costa Rica. They sucked up some other chains too along their way to country-wide dominance. They kept the names of the stores, but redirected the cashflow Arkansas-ward.

So I guess I'm still managing to support The Machine, even after getting out of Dodge. Not sure how I feel about this...

    I prefer the blue whale over the floating yellow smiley head.
