24 hours.

Canada (and definitely Grenada for that matter) has not caught on to America's 24 hour craze.

In America we have 24 hour everything.

midnight and you need a prescription filled?
1am and you need gas?
2am and you want a hamburger?
3am and you want to buy some new pants?
4am and you want to workout?
5am breakfast?

no problem!!

The mall in Newmarket closes at 6pm on a SATURDAY. who does that??
Their Wal-mart isn't even 24hrs.... can you imagine a Wal-mart being closed any time other than Christmas?
The most of the grocery stores close at 9... except maybe Metro, it might be 24 hrs....

& in Grenada (which understandably it is a 3rd world country) everything closes early except the bars... even the gas stations, which if I had a car would matter to me...

I went through a phase in Grenada where I thought it was fun and an adventure to go to 3 different grocery stores (walking several blocks in between) looking for something for dinner, usually chicken breasts...
I even said to Lee once "convenience is boring"
and then I'd snap out of it and long for a Wal-mart or Kroger

and then once I set foot back in North America and saw all the abundance and excess it was wonderful! and then now I'm thinking it's unnecessary.
the food in 1 Kroger could feed all the hungry people in Grenada for like a month! 

Isn't crazy that there are such extremes in this world? and Grenada isn't even that bad compared to other places in this world...
