Wonderful colors of Mercado … [Brazil]

Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Tefe, Manaus, Foz do Iguaçu Etc. had wonderful markets. It was an experience just to stroll around these markets and I did try various snacks in these markets. The most wonderful experience, for me, was the bright colors all around. I love fruits and I have been to many tropical countries, but even then, I was seeing some of those fruits for the very 1st time.

Cashew! I always used to wonder why the taste of the Cashew fruit never caught on … Yes, it does take some getting used to. It is quite pungent …
