My teacher of Japanese (a Mexican woman that lived in Japan for a while), many years ago, invited a person from Japan to spend some time in Mexico, so they meet at the Airport, and then went to the home of my teacher, and she saw how this othe woman unpacked, had bring some rolls of toilet paper with her.

- Is that in Japan, they recomend to bring toilet paper to Mexico, because they say that here you don't have some basic things.

So my teacher decided to poke this person, inviting her to shop at a kind of Cost-Co or something like that... you know, those stores with a flavor of warehouse, where you could by great quantities of an article. So the Japanese woman almost fell backwards seeing those series of immense of racks, with all kinds of toilet paper.

- Here is enough toilet paper for all Japan!!- was the surprised expression of this person.

My teacher just smiled.

I was pleased the other day when I went to the new Costco here in Chihuahua. Unlike Sam's Club whose prices here are off the charts and also Wal-Marts these people have kept it real with prices about the same as they are in the El Paso Costco. They are going to get a big following and hopefully others will follow suit and quit ripping off the people here in Chihuahua with horribly inflated prices. I saw they also had lot's of toilet paper. Did not check the prices on it however, lol. Nice story Sirius.
