I can buy 25 oranges or tangerines for a dollar, the same is mostly true for bananas. The amount of the citrus harvest is just incredible. Since they are still the most accessible source of fresh food, I eat A LOT of oranges and tangerines. The local farms are all full of recently planted tomato, lettuce, onion, and other goodies and when I get my own house I’ll finally be able to cook to my own taste for a change. I’ll still get to eat typical food when I find an empregada (maid). That reminds me, I’ve been doing my own laundry by hand once a week for almost nine months. It is quite a chore, takes me at least 2 hours every time usually more up to 4.
