It's a Cucumber!

It is actually the skeleton of a wild cucumber, dried. It can be used as a loofah in the bath, or as a sponge. In traditional markets and  old streets you can buy long ones and cut them into pieces. Mine is a piece from a friend's, and I use it to wash my dishes.

  1. YES! I win! :D When I lived in Victoria, they were not uncommon... I think that my family had one for a while. Do I get a prize! ;)
