Sri Lankan pineapples are the best in the world
8th July Sunday morning drive from Colombo towards Kandy.
Due to the time difference, everyone woke up around 5:00 in the morning, and before leaving at 7:30, they went to Galle Face Hotel, where James Taylor stayed for the first time since coming to Ceylon . . .
Hmm, I'm fine! After an hour's bus ride, we arrive at a pineapple village where we eat pineapples that have been peeled lengthwise and cut into sticks.
It is very sweet and juicy, and the core is soft and edible.
If you eat it with salt containing chili pepper, it will be even sweeter and more delicious, and everyone will eat two or three. . . Delicious!
Then I eat rambutan, which is in season right now, with its plump and crunchy flesh.
It smells sweet, it smells like Sri Lanka.
The sky is clear blue and the wind blowing from the jungle rustles the long green leaves of the king coconut. . . . . .
The bus was filled with the sweet scent of pineapple and rambutan.
