mmmmm mango




Mangoes are one great reason to stay in Taiwan. Finally they are in season, sweet, juicy, delightful, and only about one Canadian dollar each! Soon I'll be eating mango bing (shaved ice) to cool off a summer day. Interestingly enough the lady who sold my mango to me today asked if I was "allowed" to eat them yet. As you may recall from the banana incident, certain foods are forbidden in Chinese tradition when you have an injury. She hesitated and asked me if I still felt any pain, if so, I couldn't eat it. I told her I was fine and quickly grabbed my mango before she changed her mind about letting me have it!
