[D+147] – Working on a Sunday Afternoon with Coke

As I said in my post yesterday, I have recently started working on my internship report, which represents a good amount of work, although it is not so hard.

I bought some Coke earlier in the afternoon, and as you can see normal-sized Coke bottles are 65 cl ones (~22 oz), which is huuuge for us, Frenchies. I don’t know if the size in the USA is similar, so I hope some of you will share their knowledge about Coke bottle sizes by leaving a comment on this post !!

I have to say that, apart from the Casino, you can’t buy bottles in Poite-Noire. Well, I assume some places do sell them, but it’s rare. Actually, bottles are recycled. For instance, I brought 4 empty bottles to a restaurant I know and they gave me 4 Coke bottles bottles instead, for 2400 XAF. Bottles are interchangeable, which means that you can give some beer bottles and buy Coke.

As the bottles are recycled, you often find bottles which seem to be kind of old, often with oldish worn labels. One may think he’s drinking Nuka Cola, hopefully not the Quantum one… (I know this is a video-game reference but I know some people know what I’m talking about).

Keep in touch for more news soon, and don’t forget to leave a comment to tell the price and the size of Coke bottles in your country… !
