Mangos!

Oh, I love mangos! I bought a mango once in the States but I didn´t know how to cut it up (the seed is tricky) so I ended up butchering it and throwing it away because I´d made such a mess. Now I can´t get enough of them. The season ends towards the end of this month so I´m taking full advantage of the bounty. Yesterday I went to go buy mangos from this lady in town who I´ve gone to a couple times before and I asked her (after buying 6) if I could take a picture to show my friends and family back home all the mangos. She didn´t mind. I told her that a mango this size in the US would cost around 27 lempira ($1.50) and I had just bought 6 mangos for 20 lemps ($1)! She thought that was hilarious and as I was leaving, I could hear her turn to her friend and say, ¨Guess what a mango in the US costs?¨. Anyway, below is the picture of the mangos and the truck she sells them out of.

The ones I buy are the bigger ones towards the cab of the truck that are more green and red.
