I went shopping yesterday, nothing exciting, just the weekly visit to the supermarket. I had with me a small basket that I use for bottles and heavy stuff. I brought it back with me from Tanga market. There they are given free if you are buying a lot of vegetables, so I suppose it is the African equivalent of a Tesco carrier bag (other supermarket carrier bags are available).

Always with an eye for stuff I can put in this blog, I took a photo of it on my return home.


Prettier and more environmentally friendly than your actual Tesco carrier.  I even put some veg around it – perhaps I’ll start a new career as a food stylist – or perhaps I won’t.
