Potato Famine

Potato is our staple . Look at that price. I could not resist to buy many many bags. By the way, that remind me the Patato Famine in 1845-1851 in Ireland. The crops was destroyed by water mold, a lot of people starved to dead. A wave of Irish immigrant arrived to America. The country was not very prosperous at that time. They could not find job . Local people began to look down on them, it was not a easy time for new Irish immigrants.
