1 dollar for a bread.. 1 pound for a bread.. Exchange rate.. 1/10 dollar.. And 1/17.66 pound.. So.. If I had 1 pound that would give me 17 rand.. And a bread can cost 10 rand.. If I paid 1 dollar for a bread.. In rand.. That cost 10 rand.. Same price no..

Man this is Absolutely ridiculous! This is way to much money for food!! Im from Oakland California but my wife and children are in Capetown and this is none sense! They want to move to America and we are making plans for transition! Out here where im from you can get a loaf of bread for only one dollar! The reason Capetown In some areas are so bad is because the prices are high, when you raise the price, you basically raise the crime rate! People have to eat but they can't, as a result people will sale drugs or rob you, im not saying that this is right because it's wrong.but change the food price Asap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
