It’s been awhile but all is good..
Mango season has officially arrived! Mangoes are all over… and that makes me really happy… Fresh mangoes or juice is now a daily habit 😉
We visited Old Dhaka yesterday which is a buslting area in the south of the city near the Buriganga River. Mango shipments, amongst many other things, were arriving by boat.
Mangoes for sale are all over the city like in the picture above. The price is about 100 BDT (1,2$) for a kilo (about 3 mangoes)
I usually cut the mango in little cubes or just peel it an eat it like a banana.
A woman at work told me that people here loved to blend the mango with milk and mix it with rice. It haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds good.
I know I’m missing out on apricots, strawberries and melon in France… but I can’t complain when mangoes, litchis, pineapple and coconuts are all over.
The picture above isn’t good but you can see the first truck full of banana’s and the one behind was unloading pineapples. Such huge quantities.
Oh! and watermelon, papaya, guayava, jackfruit are in season too…
