The Most Expensive Grapes Ever

One thing that I really miss about Vietnam is the cheap and delicious fruit. In Vietnam you can get a kilo of just about every fruit for no more than two dollars. In Japan it is a different story. Check out how much these grapes cost:

That's 1580 Yen. As of typing this email that converts to $17.60. No, I'm not joking.

All grapes here are not that expensive. However, they are never cheap. That said, Japanese grapes are AMAZING. Katie described the grapes here best for me. She said, "Grapes here taste like grape candy." The grapes are the sweetest things I've ever tasted...but yeah, not worth nearly twenty dollars.

I've yet to see a square watermelon. If I come across one I'll be sure to post about it.
