household essentials

The house.

  Untitled

The essentials:

  Untitled

Earl Grey.
(It's from Whole Foods, the only place in my neighborhood at home that had leaves. Doesn't
matter that it's organic.)

  Untitled

 Rum. It's cheaper here. Buy the big bottle. (There is no wine for less than $15.00.)

  Untitled

The electric kettle. (Not really essential but really nice.)

  Untitled

The beer.

  Untitled

Delish seasoning.
(Goes on chicken, fish, rice. Eliminates the need for fresh or jarred herbs in a pinch.)

  Untitled

Ribena.
(Terrible photos, I know.)
(Go ahead and laugh, Australians, this stuff is the shit with soda water and even better with the soda water and gin.)

  Untitled

Hot sauce. (Goes on everything. Must be local. This one's the best.)

  Untitled

Aspirin.
(You are going to hurt yourself somehow.)

Untitled

Candy.
(Must be unavailable at home. Bonus points for bars with wacky names.)

  Untitled

Odd beverage. (Bonus points if it was bottled in the United Arab Emirates.)


Today: Home to Tuvalu.

Yes, laughing. I'd orgotten about you and your Ribena fetish. Did i ever send you some? I remember looking but i suspect it was all in glass and therefore unpostable.

Safe travels home sweet x
