Count your cherries

Yesterday I came across this organic food store, Al Marej. It's not something you see everyday here, and the owner (who happens to be both a farmer and agriculturist) says his is one of a very few such stores in the country. Delighted to see cherries in the fridge, I took them to the till - only to be handed a 10 000LL bill for them! Too embarrassed to discard the R50 pack of yummy fruit, I handed over the yellow-coloured monetary note and fled, afraid of being tempted to buy the organic honey from the owner's farm in Laklouq too! He did promise to add me to his media trip to the organic farm soon. So I'll take that as 10 000 bucks well spent.
