The riverboat supermarket

I recently went for a motorcycle ride along the wharf in Santarém, where I noticed a large blue object in the distance. It was a riverboat. No–it was a supermarket. No–it actually was a riverboat supermarket!

It turns out Nestle has outfitted a riverboat with aisle-long shelves, cash machines, and bad fluorescent lighting. It travels up-and-down the Amazon, traversing between Santarem, and Belem.

The best part? It sells my favorite chocolate!
