Shopping cart butter

A shopping cart full of butter is one of the ways to get those calories.  This mountain of butter was only part of the food I took to survive in continent 7.  The checkout couldn’t even ring this many items up on one receipt.  She had to run three credit card transactions for me to buy this.

Abu Gosch in Chile was a great place to purchase these supplies, cheaper than in Punta Arenas.  It just required a taxi ride out and a very understanding taxi driver coming back in.
