Something that is as simple as sugar- is not a simple thing!

Today was a reminder that we live in very strange times here Malawi. Along with no gas - we have a quarter of a tank and don't see a fill up anytime soon- there has been a sugar shortage. Sugar is a staple here in Malawi ( ok a staple everywhere- can u imagine life with no sugar? ). Most Malawians have tea with sugar at least one time a day and more if they got it! I went shopping for food today and this was the line for sugar! Just for sugar! There were lines like this at 2 other stores and in most stores there was no sugar at all. Hard for my mind to wrap my mind around.
