When I was returning from the grocery store, I saw a man walking around with a long loaf of bread under his arm. Much later in the day, he rang our bell and gave us a loaf. It was much longer than this (on the left). Baba answered the door and took her share of the loaf first! I had already bought bread at the store. The loaf on the right is the usual size available in shops. Loaves of bread come in 6 or 8 slices. We now have a lot of bread!
Bakeries come and go in this neighborhood. I hope this one stays. I hope they sell smaller loaves, too. We're not used to eating bread everyday.
