Bentonville, AR is famous as the location of Walmart headquarters. it is about 30 minutes away from Fayetteville. It is also an extremely beautiful city. We visited the Walmart Visitor Center at Bentonville today. It comprised of a museum chronicling the history of the Waltons and Walmart, a shop called Walton’s 5&10 and a cafe, The Spark Cafe Soda Fountain. It also has an FB page. Thankfully, the weather was not so chilly 🙂 . It was an informative visit, we bought a postcard and a mug as souvenirs.
We have also discovered an Indian store at Bentonville that not only sells the regular groceries and spices, but also lamb and fish, including hilsa and rohu! (Now we are both happy.) We bough rohu today and cooked rui macher kalia (spicy carp fish curry), with tomatoes and onions, ground into a paste and cooked with fried fish. It was delicious.
