The small groseries - shop of „Abraham“
the first years I was happy to visit this little groseries - shop.
Like to remember " chez abraham "
”monsieur Abraham” is a non-aged african who is busy in this
groseries-shop, together with his family,
well-known in his quarter, a friendly respected person.
Nearly everything you could find there, as candles, matches, bread,
rice in open sacs, juice, condensed sweet milk, cans with vegetable.
one piece of bread with peanut butter for the children, one cigarette,
bonbons, spice small portions and everything not expensive.
Never I met other European people there, they prefer to go to the
big supermarkets. For me it means the connections to my childhood,
not feeling strange and a with personal connection with the African people.
Often, after swimming at the beach, stopped there to have a brake,
looking for fresh bred ( baguette) an d fresh cold coke or fanta or
fresh peppermint leaves, or some other small things.
Some years later, closed and now a boutique for tourists.
Well usually it was the duty of my housekeeper in the morning,
to go to big fresh market to go shopping there for fresh fish or sometimes
fresh meat, vegetable, fruit , for preparing a good African meal.
