Mini-Series: Why I Love Living In Cambodia
Day Three: Fresh Fruit
Fresh bananas cut right from the tree.
Rambutans, prickly red on the outside and sweet and white on the inside.
Pineapple. Sliced and put into a little bag with a skewer stick. Warm, sticky, and sweet.
I love pulling up to the fruit cart and ordering one fresh mango, to go please. The cleaver whacks in a familiar way at the mango, chiseling off the green peel and swiftly dividing the mango into a bouquet of chewy sticks. Chili and salt on the side.
That'll be 25 cents, please.
