A trip to Wal-Mart & Sam's Club

I took a bunch of photos today of our trip to the Wal-Mart and Sam's Club of Goiania. It felt like I walked from Brazil right back to the United States. The store layouts were very similar to the US stores, but most the products where Brazilian. The Sam's Club did have a small section of US products like bbq sauce, Heinz ketchup, French's mustard, and even tortillas! Most of the products where reasonably priced...except for the tortillas...those where $12 for 20!
By far the coolest things was the flat escalator for shopping carts. The carts all have some kind of magnetic or gravitational lock that prevents the rolling down hill. I had fun!
