Although we have lived in this condo complex for 7 months now, it was only yesterday that I learned about the mini-mart located in the basement car-park (as they like to call parking lots here) of the clubhouse. Since we don't have a car, I've never had a reason to visit the car-park. But yesterday I heard a rumor that there was a little store right here in our condo complex and after some investigation, the rumor turned out to be true!
It may not look like much to you, but if you could have seen the jig I danced when I discovered this goldmine, you would know how exciting this news is to this convenience-loving American. The best part: they sell ice cream, which I have not been able to buy due to the warm weather, 20-minute bus-ride and 1/2-mile hike home from the regular grocery store. Hooray for convenience stores, ice cream, and basement car-parks!
