What is eaten in one week...

This is an interesting photo comparison of what different families eat around the world in one week. (forwarded email from Theresa) There are two photo essay books available in the college library that follow a similar theme, one about food, the other about material possessions (Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, and Material World: A Global Family Portrait).


Poland: The Sobczynscy family of Konstancin-Jeziorna
Food expenditure for one week: 582.48 Zlotys or $151.27















Egypt: The Ahmed family of Cairo
Food expenditure for one week: 387.85 Egyptian Pounds or $68.53
















Ecuador: The Ayme family of Tingo
Food expenditure for one week: $31.55















Bhutan : The Namgay family of Shingkhey Village
Food expenditure for one week: 224.93 ngultrum or $5.03














Italy: The Manzo family of Sicily
Food expenditure for one week: 214.36 Euros or $260.11















United States: The Revis family of North Carolina
Food expenditure for one week $341.98















Germany: The Melander family of Bargteheide
Food expenditure for one week: 375.39 Euros or $500.07

What does this tell us about Americans? We are selfish pigs who are all obese. This may or may not be true for SOME Americans,but I don't think this is a fair representation of our nation. I eat healthy foods and spend much less than those piggish people who eat fast food every day.

Ich bin ein deutscher Mann, und Sie Amerikaner sind so falsch über uns. Ich bin kein Alkoholiker, noch sind alle meine Freunde. Die Amerikaner sind die Trinker und Partygäste, nicht wir!
