Fruit Around The World

mercadojamaicamexico7

After chocolate and cheese, I think fruit is another one of my favorite foods. I haven’t met a fruit I didn’t like and they come in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors. You will also find a different selection depending on which country you’re in.

I’ve had the pleasure to grow up in a country where fruit is abundant and delicious, and I’ve also had the pleasure to travel and taste different fruits across the world. Enjoy this photo-series:

  1. What a great theme for a post, I especially love the photo of the mango cut up! I love trying out really fresh fruit when I travel. I think my favourites are juicy mango and passion fruit. My favourite fruit memory was in Nepal as a man in the village we lived in game us mango everyday. We nicknamed him ‘mango man’ and he made us very happy. One day, during a monsoon shower, we had mango juices running down our faces mixed with all the rain too! Such a happy memory 🙂

  2. Mmmm mango. I must try the blueberry and avocado smoothie one of these days and the banana man is pretty funny 🙂
