Hello Everyone,
Wrote my last exam yesterday and am so happy to be back blogging rather than my books. A friend of mine sent me this little visual study on what some folks eat. The idea was for each family to present all the food and drink they consume in one week.

Food for thought.

Italy : The Manzo family of Sicily
Food expenditure for one week: 214.36 Euros or $260.11

Germany : The Melander family of Bargteheide
Food expenditure for one week: 375.39 Euros or $500.07

United States : The Revis family of North Carolina.
Food expenditure for one week $341.98

Mexico : The Casales family of Cuernavaca
Food expenditure for one week: 1, 862.78 Mexican Pesos or $89.09

Poland : The Sobczynscy family of Konstancin-Jeziorna
Food expenditure for one week: 582.48 Zlotys or $151.27

Egypt : The Ahmed family of Cairo
Food expenditure for one week: 387.85 Egyptian Pounds or $68.53

Ecuador : The Ayme family of Tingo
Food expenditure for one week: $31.55

Bhutan : The Namgay family of Shingkhey Village
Food expenditure for one week: 224.93 ngultrum or $5.03

Chad: The Aboubakar family of Breidjing Camp
Food expenditure for one week: 685 CFA Francs or $1.23

The menu in the United States just totally freaks me out.

I can relate to Cairo , it looks pretty nice! I would likely fit into Tingo, Shingkhey Village and Cuernavaca...yummy!

I am so heartbroken to see the big pile of rice and so few foods for the African family.

Mind you that picture is better than what we are hearing now about massive food shortages everywhere...worse in Africa than ever when US is having food shortages...

Thanks for swinging by guys!

My wish list for families I'd like to eat with for a week are the Casales, the Ahmed family and, last but not least, the Aboubaker family of the Breidjing Camp.

The Ayme family is on the list too, especially because they look really happy.
