We are a little embarrassed by the surfeit of fruit that we have accumulated in recent days.
We are eating an awful lot of fruit but we are perhaps buying a bit too much. This is certainly not extravagance in terms of money. Fruit here is generally of a very high quality but reasonably priced.
Our heavily laden bags normally cost no more than £7 to fill. Shopkeepers have chosen their best products for us and given us somethings for free.
When we needed a small amount of olive oil to last for our final few days, the local shop was able to offer only 1 litre bottles. So they went to their house, filled up our little 250ml bottle and refused to take any money.
