ヒューストンで買い物 Grocery shopping in Houston

今日はヒューストンに食料品を買いにいきました。
日本食材の店と、チャイニーズマーケット。チャイニーズマーケットは日本食マーケットに比べるとたぶん30倍くらいの大きさで、ほぼ何でもあるけど、やっぱり米は日本食マーケットのコシヒカリじゃないとだめなので、高いけどそっちで。米の値段は数年前の倍近くまであがってます。(20パウンドで16ドルくらいだったのが31ドルに)

I went to Houston for grocery shopping today. The size of Chinese market is maybe about 30 times bigger than Japanese market... You can buy most things from Chinese market and probably cheaper there, but I really need good Japanese rice. Price of rice (Japanese rice - from California) is almost twice as much as the price a few years ago. (went up to $31 from $16 for 20lb)






タイヤを履き替えました。横浜タイヤのジオランダーH/TS。エレメントにもとからついてたタイヤに比べると、滑りにくいし静かだし、全然いいです。
Oh and I got new shoes for my Element. Yokohama Geolander H/TS. Much quieter than the OEM tires.

2 questions: How much rice do you get for $31 and what's the difference between Japanese rice and any other rice?

Hey Sarah, thanks for the comment.
Yeah I forgot to say for how many pound. (I actually did in Japanese part)
It's for 20lb. I updated already.
Japanese rice is different from American rice. It's short and sticky. Japanese rice have some different kinds (brands) and they all taste different.
