So Mary Alice and I parked in the lot and the first thing we did was get a basket. You need a 1 Euro coin, to put into the cart's chain lock and then it's yours for the shopping trip. This assures you will return the cart to get your Euro back, kind of like ALDI stores at home. By the way, Nola and Randy taught us all these things 3 years ago when we first decided to stay in an apartment with a kitchen.

I wanted some eggs so I got a half dozen brown ones. I didn't see any other color or choice. There is a local market in Vence on Fridays and we can buy really fresh eggs from the "egg lady." Six will do til then.
During all this, we ran into someone we know, the owner of the hotel we stayed at for a couple of days last year! I guess that makes us "natives", running into someone you know at the grocery store!
