Dec 23 – Dec 28 Cali - Fruits and Vegetables

Nah, not what you think.

When I was in Bogotá, my friend Pablo and his wife took me along to a giant Produce Store. Colombia has a gazillion unique fruits and vegetables and I had failed to bring my camera . . . idiot!

So when wandering through a store in Cali, I thought I would share a few of the things they eat here. You may recognize a few things but most are unique to Colombia. I didn't get everything (particularly the tomatoes that grow on trees) but here is a sample.

They like their bananas. Here are two types with a whole stack of extra ripe ones in the back



Plantanos - usually fried up in various forms



Couple of root vegetables behind the guy.



Get a bundle of some different lettuces with some flowers mixed in



Different types of peas



These guys on the right apparently come from a cactus
