New land and new fruits


One of the things I love most about travelling is the food from different cultures.

In Rio Brazil they seem to have fruits and some vegetables that I very used too coming from Ghana.

I saw Cassava which is one of the staple foods  in Ghana and we usually will eat it with soup and it’s usually eaten on weekends…now don’t ask me why. Lol!!!

In Brazil they boil the cassava and serves it just as is. And they put it in a husk and just sell it. I am yet to taste that one.

Also they have okro which my husband and his family calls it the slimy dish….lol!! And I call it yummy okro stew with banku.

Well today I made life long friends and they really made me feel so welcomed at their home. They have a daughter same age as mine so our girls became friends and through that I got to meet her parents who happens to be awesome couple.  While I got to spend sometime with them they had me taste some Brazilian fruit which looks just like tomatoes to me. You will be able to understand me when I show what the fruit looks like. And it tasted like a very very ripe papaya.


Yeap that’s the fruit called caqui and it does really look like our regular tomato…


I had to try it and I kind of enjoyed it…but they said it can get sweeter so will try other ones when I visit the grocery store again.


This next fruit is called Jabuitcaba and it’s only found in brazil…

Travelling can be awesome, making life long friends who teaches you new things about their culture and country is even amazing.

  1. Aside the few hitches about the language initially, you are enjoying every other bit of exploring Brazil. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to learn the cultures of other people. Enjoy your time in Brazil.
