Bananas! Bananas! BANANAS!

This morning Jim and Patty Fackrell stopped at the temple on their way back from the airport. They had picked up their daughter Kara who came to Peru to visit for 10 days.  In January Kara returned from her mission in Latvia.

They invited us to go to the market with them. I really wanted to go and was happy when Wayne said ok. All 5 of us piled into a taxi and we were on our way to the Hermalinda Market.

This market has everything, it is big, and it was fun to see.

We saw a lot of interesting things, live animals including pigs and a lot of chickens.  There were a lot of different shops and people selling their goods.

We bought 4 Avocados from a guy selling them out of a wheelbarrow for 2 soles and a Mango that was 2 soles.  The bananas were something to see. I have never seen so many bananas all in one place!
They were unloading big trucks full of green bananas.

We had a great time seeing all of the stuff there.  Wayne and I wanted to buy two things, a thermometer and a fan like those that unfold to use at church.  We didn't find either.  Thanks to the Fackrell's for a fun morning.
