I LOVE fresh pineapple and papaya (with lime squeezed on the papaya)! We traveled to Jamaica years ago, and the bananas there were SO different, with a wonderful flavor!! I believe we tried local fruits "sweetsop" and "soursop," too.
The vendor reminds me of the little specialty shops in Paris: the cheese shop, the vegetable and fruit shop, the bread shop, the butcher, the candy shop, the wine shop, -- you get the idea! Somewhat like Thailand, and other countries as well, no doubt. I love these glimpses into your way of life, Suzanne, keep 'em coming!!
