Besides the usual adverts that scroll through, there were a lot of adverts and advice related to the pandemic we are living through.
Some of the signs were just plain good advice for those who panicked and stock-piled a whole lot of articles from the supermarkets, fearing a months long lockdown.
Supermarkets have now introduced limits on certain items like milk, rice, flour, pasta, toilet paper, kitchen paper, paper serviettes, hand sanitiser, baby wipes, antibacterial wipes, tissues...
Depending on the time of day, I've also seen the meat section a bit bare, as well as the shelves of canned foods, and recently when looking for flour to make the sourdough bread I bake weekly I only managed to get a 500gr packet of it! I hope everybody is baking lots of cakes and bread.
Now even the milk has been cut to 2 packets/bottle per person. And if you want to buy a cup of cream, you will have to leave 1 milk out. Crazy, as I think no one would drink cream, but who knows? The only milk still plentiful is the soy, almond or coconut long-life milk.
Luckily fresh fruit and vegetables are still plentiful, so we won't go hungry.
