THE LAND OF FRUITS… AND FOOTBALL

(Version française plus bas)

Papaya, mandarins, maracuyá, guanabana, banana, avocado, oranges, lemons, grape, apples, pears, watermelon… Fruits can be found in one specific area of the market, football shoes and wellington boots in another, while pork meat with potatoes or corn is waiting to be eaten in some kind of food court.

TERRE DE FRUITS… ET DE FOOT

Papaye, mandarines, maracuyá, guanabana, bananes, avocats, oranges, citrons, raisin, pommes, poires, pastèque… Pour les fruits, c’est par ici! Pour les chaussures à crampons et bottes de pluie, c’est par là! Et pour la viande de porc qui attend d’être dégustée accompagnée de pommes de terre ou de maïs, c’est au comptoir!

    I’m not so sure I want to see a dead pig right before I eat pork. I guess this way you know it is fresh meat, but I may lose my appetite from seeing what’s coming out the bottom end there.🙂
