My sitemate Megan visited the coast. Which is totally awesome and rare here because Bluefields, Nicaragua is about 8-9 hours away travel including buses AND rickety boats. She brought fruta de pan there and invited m over to watch it be cooked and eat it! Well who am I to turn down a cultural lesson? So I went. It’s a fruit that’s very starchy. Once you cut into it you have to leave it sitting in water to preserve it. We cut it into squares an fried it and it ended up tasting a good middle between French fries and sweet potatoes fries. I liked it. She shared it with her and friends and her bosses because it’s a rare fruit, only on the coast, and most Nicaraguans never travel that far. She’s so kind and I met new people. Today was a good day.
