Fresh Fruit

All that exotic fruit that I used to try occasionally in the States isn't exotic any more. I can go down to the neighborhood market and buy mangoes, starfruit and custard apples. I've never lived so close to the equator - Taipei's not quite tropical, but it's only a short train ride away to places that are.

There are durians for sale down at the market. I've never had a fresh one but I know their reputation quite well. It's something I will have to try while I'm here.
