Today at CityDia Mermoz

4
A first! Fresh cherries in Dakar. Another first… seeing cherries at 15,000cfa/kilo. (!!)

Instead, I splurged at the cheese counter. Cheddar, smoked goat cheese (nature, with herbs, with pimento…) and Gouda in five varieties. Mmm…
3
Frozen turkeys by the local Label Bleu. Most were in the 22,000-25,000cfa range. (But if you really want a turkey, call Poulet Express. They have fresh ones at 5000/kilo and will deliver to you.)

Broccoli and artichokes. The broccoli looked good, but the artichokes had (hopefully) seen better days.

CityDia is currently running a holiday special in which you get a scratch-off card for every 5000 cfa spent. If your scratching-off reveals you should ‘retentez’, the cards be be upcycled into lovely Christmas ornaments!
