Mango Festival

Yearly, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden organizes a mango festival. This year, it occurs this weekend and today is the second and last day. It is a big disappointment to me because there is only one vendor and they use mangoes imported from Central America. The workers told me this year mango crops are not very abundant. Even a bigger disappointment to me is that they charge US $1.00 to taste the mangoes. What happened to the tradition of having mangoes to taste free of charge? This photo shows you the mangoes that are for sale. Did I buy any? Of course not, the price they demand for mangoes here make you think they are made of gold. Thanks, but no thanks!
