Items we purchased
Rambutan - tastes like a grape, very juicy, VERY yummy - just watch out for the pit in the middle.
We went to the farmers market today - about a 15 minute walk from our house. Saw all sorts of cool things - many things we didn't recognize. Madison was able to ask for things using her Spanish :-) We were even "advised" from a local Costa Rican to be wary of a certain vendor (all in Spanish I might add) - very nice man - watching out for us poor gringos :-) Had a very fun time - and overall only spent around $6.00 on a week of veggies and fruit. The only reason it was so "expensive" was because the watermelon was $2.00. Otherwise, $4.00 for fruit and veggies for the week - GREAT price! Love it! Will be going often! Had some fun fruit - rambutan - see the pic above.
Had some firsts today:
1. Made refried beans from scratch
2. Ate some rambutans
3. Purchased stuff / talked in Spanish at the farmers market in Costa Rica
