Over the holidays we took a cruise up the Amazon. One of the highlights for me was a walkthrough of the huge market in Manaus, Brazil, a thousand miles upriver from the ocean. In the middle of a rain forest, Manaus is agriculture central. We saw many fruits and vegetables that were familiar; many others that weren't.
Bananas of many different varieties:
Very long beans:
Lots of fruit:
I'll show you some of the unfamiliar foods in my next post.
