92.35 CHF

That's right, folks! We paid 92.35 swiss francs (CHF) for our groceries on Tuesday, which is just over 97 US dollars! Take a look at our receipt and you'll see how it all breaks down and adds up.

That means the winner of our chicken dinner is my uncle, Brett McClintock! Congratulations Brett! Your guess of 92.76 was just 0.41 off, wow — you must have cheated. I'm sure you were guessing in swiss francs, right? You haven't actually won a chicken dinner but it rhymed nicely. I assure you your prize will be much, shall we say... sweeter?

On top of the price of groceries we also had to buy these special Zurich trash bags. Apparently you can get into some trouble if you throw your trash in "regular" bags, so they force our hand. The strange thing is, they sell regular bags, but I'm not sure why. We paid about $11 for 10 bags.

And what do we do with all these groceries? Well, that night we prepared the hackbraten (14CHF), the gravy (1.90CHF) and the mushrooms (0.95CHF). We ate for a little under $18, which isn't too bad after all. The funny thing is that we had to use Google to help us translate all the german cooking intructions. What would we have done without the internet? Raw meatloaf, I guess.

Thanks for playing! We'll chat with you soon. Goodnight from Switzerland and congratulations Uncle B!

Surprisingly, we've seen quite a few tall people here, although I think only one bigger than me. I don't have plans to join the circus but you never know. Thanks for reading, Brett!
