One of the biggest differences I notice between Denmark and the United States is in the department of grocery shopping. I took some pictures to illustrate my point. They are from the grocery store Netto, generally the cheapest place to shop. I do check the weekly flyers from all the stores, so I end up shopping at various locations.
This is the pork/beef section. Thats all.
A typical isle. I'm standing at the end of the store. You can see the registers at the front. That is also my friend Grant in the picture. I saw him there randomly.
Some people checking out. No shopping carts here.
My groceries: 2 heads lettuce, 3 cans tuna fish, 30 eggs, sunflower seeds, olive oil, a bottle of red wine, and 3 bags of frozen veggies in the bottom. I think it costed me 30USD.
All the grocery stores are small. Even the largest that I do not shop at because they are expensive, are half the size of a typical Hannaford or Price Chopper from back home. Also, surprisingly, there is no Walmart.
