Postcards from New Zealand: Day Forty-One

Today, we went to the farmer's market. We had left the house in a hurry, and only brought sixty dollars with us, not realizing we would buy a few big-ticket items (olive oil, peanut butter) and possibly need a bit more cash if were going to sit down for a coffee afterwards. With only eleven dollars left (eleven kiwi dollars is about eight American), we decided to blow it all at the veggie stand, and just go back home for more money before caffeinating. But vegetables are so cheap here that we couldn't spend all of our money, even though we bought a giant pile of greens. We only managed to spend seven kiwi dollars, on four meals worth of veggies.
