We have an elder who has been teaching us about Filipino food. Here is some fruit he has shared with us. This is dragon fruit. It looks like a dragon but the fruit inside is like a big kiwi but not as sweet.
At our branch Relief Society activity last Saturday I was introduced to boiled bananas and taro root. My contribution was rice crispy squares which were a new treat for the sisters.

There are certain times eating at our local McDonalds can be a challenge. The school next door has 6000 students which means long lines and few tables during lunch break.

Just a mention of how to cross the street. If traffic is moving at all it is usually about 10MPH so if there is a slight space to step onto the road you do so and usually all the cars stop to let you by. If not, you wait in the middle of the road until another space appears. The trick is that everyone goes slow so the car or you have time to stop before anything bad happens.
