30 Bananas a Day!

from Philippines to Hawaii, Durian is rocking

Leaving DAvao City PHilippines has been challenging. The durian season was building sooo strong...piles everywhere, and the price was dropping approaching 50cents/pound. Even though you can buy durian fresh all year long there, the strong seasons are more special. The durian culture is sooo profound, most everyone can afford it and appreciate it.

Hanging out with Dr. Robert Lockhart, my amazing, inspiring, fun friend was perfect. He is 66 years young and a committed fruitarian fro 30 years. He is someone that 'walks the talk' for sure. He even was able to Fast for 48hours with durians alll around him, something I havent been able to do for 8 hours (he stubbed his toe and wanted it to heal fastly).

NOw I am loving a new country.....HAWAII....i am on the Big island, staying with a wonderful friend RICH, also a commmitted fruitarian. We are here now durian prime mango, durian, and white pineapple season.....its all the BEST ever...The durian is sooo delicous, nearly as great as PHilippines...the price is $6/kilo. The season just began!! I wanted to take a break from durian after eating mostly every day for approx. 2 and 1/2 years, but why bother.

The mangos and white pineapples are the best flavor i have EVER experienced any where else in the whole world. The chill vibe and the lush jungle and natural country feeling is lifechanging...i plan to spend most of my life around here....easy decision after experiencing so many places around the world.
Falling in love with a special someone will have to be next, to share this hidden jewel of a place....walking barefoot on roads under endless canopies of trees, heading to surf the Hawaiian waves, following a bath in a natural hotspring, then back to eating FREE mangos falling from the trees.

feeling amazing after gardening 3 hours with Rich on his new property....feels great to do physical exercise that will benefit the garden and our future of eating fruits.

The Big is truly a magical land. I felt I could do something new there everyday and never run out of options. :)
Are you and Rich on the northern end?
