bambucha

DSC01512 While most things in Japan are teeny, everything here are bambucha (huge)!

Remember those blueberries I talked about before?! see?!

DSC01530 And then my mom's friend gave us this papaya, I think they call this one "watermelon" papaya because it is as big and heavy like a watermelon.

Also, I think the insides are supposed to be light pink like a watermelon too.

It's probably gonna take us a week to eat it...

DSC01537 I bought a multi-vitamin and omega-3 supplement to take while I'm here...at least I don't have a problem swallowing pills...yet!

DSC01552 Another friend of my mom's, grew these okra.

In Japan, our okra is maybe 3 inches long, max, almost like fingers.

These were at least 4 to 6 inches and really thick!

DSC01563 This roll of toilet paper was as wide and thick as a roll of paper towel....eep!

So, I'm freaking out with all these big things...anything freaking you out these days?!

Haha, Americans love big things. Look at typical American cars, meals, etc...I do not like huge things. I love small, but functional! :)

So that's the scoop on the tp. Big things aren't lacking over here (there's always a friggin GIGANTIC mortadella being displayed around somewhere), and when I see american-style hamburger buns and muffins at the supermarket, I laugh because Italy has definitely caught the american bug. Like the american-style frige in my house...that's so alla moda now.

Now on the topic of freaking out...here's something to contribute. I found a snake in my house a couple days ago. Horrors!

Loved that photo of the papaya Kat! Bambucha was the first word that came to mind.
