I’m still delighted every time I receive a gift from the local people. Next time we’re away I have to remember to buy some gifts to bring back myself. So far, the most common gifts have been plantains and bananas (I won’t be bringing those back though). Now, I’m aware that plantains are bigger than bananas, but the monster bunch I recently received defies explanation.
I felt I needed a scale to do them justice in a photo. Insert over-ripe banana…
With a normal-size banana, a nearly black normal-size banana, next to the plantain bunch, one can get a feel of the enormity.
Hmmmm, plantain stew?
