There are no grapes in the stores whatsoever here in Iringa, and in Arusha they cost about $7-$15 for a little bunch of them - So when we lived in Arusha we pretty much never ever got them, and we couldn't get them at all here even if we tried.

What's something great that's happened for you this week?
