Going upscale

June 7, 2009. After lunch, we wanted to gain some contrast in the way locals really shop, so we stopped by the upscale market called "Unimarc". Unfortunately, they didn't allow our video cameras in, but this modern, clean, and well stocked market was really something we'd expect in any of our upscale grocery markets. Esther and I were thrilled to find canned Locos on the shelf. We both bought some. $20.00 U.S. Locos party when we get home. One note to coffee drinkers: The best you'll find here is instant. Darrell's comment on coffee in Chile is "It's a complete travesty" I second that notion! We did actually pass by a Starbucks on the way back to the hotel.
