At The Market

Cooking Bananas

Bunch of large bananas used for cooking, Darajani Market, Zanzibar, Tanzania

We encountered a variety of types of bananas in Tanzania: red ones, yellow ones, green ones, small ones, big ones. Theses large, starchy bananas (plantains) are used for cooking and are not really edible raw. Bananas are a staple of the Tanzanian diet and one of Zanzibar’s main exports.

Fresh Falafel in Cairo

Second to last day of my Egypt trip. We have returned to Cairo. Before lunch that included fresh falafel, we visited the Egyptian Musuem.

The museum is so out of date it still uses fans for climate control and has very few labels identifying items.

Extraordinary works of are art plunked down in galleries  and no one stopping kids and adults from touching them.

They are building a new Egyption Museum in Giza. When finished, it will apparently be the biggest museum in the world. They have a long way to go because of delays. It was scheduled for 2018. This is a bad picture from a bus window.
