Quito Ecuador (Cont’d)-Part 10 –shopping the produce market of Quito
I really enjoy the street markets of Latin America because they are always so interesting, plus the vendors are always willing to talk with you.
The previous afternoon, my teacher had given me the names of a bunch of different kinds of tropical fruits to research on the internet. Most of them I had never seen nor heard of. My assignment the next day(Wed.) was to go to the market, buy each of the fruits, and be prepared to give a show and tell report to the other students. I was supposed to show each fruit and tell some details about each one; like how it is grown, its growing season, flavor, uses, etc. That sounded fun. I was up for the challenge.
We walked 3-4 blocks to a big indoor fruit market. The best way to give you the idea of the market is to show a bunch of photos here. You’ll get the idea.
Pretty interesting stuff….huh? My next step would be to put it into words and do my best to explain it to the rest of the students in school.
