This is just another cute misspelling that caught my eye on a receipt for some grapefruit (spelled “greepfruit”) that we had purchased from the supermarket. Food prices here are generally considerably cheaper than in the USA. This receipt shows that the price per kilo (1 kilo = 2.2 pounds) for the “greepfruit” is 6 Saudi Riyals, which is the equivalent of about $1.50 US. So for 1/2 kilo (about 1 pound) of grapefruit, the cost was 3 riyals or about $.75 US. How does that compare to your neck of the woods?
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
