A Picture a Day, September 2013 – Day 29

So many guavas go to waste here. Tree after tree is loaded and they just fall to the ground and rot. Whenever I go past a guava tree I try to pick the ripe ones within my reach. On this day I was only able to reach one, I rinsed it off with water from my water bottle and proceeded to devourer it. My group of hikers was moving on and I had to walk away. They couldn’t understand my fascination with the guavas and why it hurt me so to see them go to waste.

    food that falls to the ground is food for mother earth, which doesn’t get as much good stuff anymore. I hear you though of course. People could really use this, yes.

    1. Very true Sarah. Very true.
