They say 1,000 words is worth a picture…
There are 124 Transport trailers on that boat – two boats a week arrive in San Diego. One is from Costa Rica, the other from Hondouras. As soon as the ship is emptied it is sent back with empty trailers to fill again.
It`s been very powerful seeing the boat there for the whole week I have been here. The irony that I have travelled from just as far as the bananas is not lost on me.
I don`t eat a lot of bananas – maybe 1 a year. I do eat plenty of other food from just as far, especially in the winter. There can be many complex problems with eating locally as well so this isn`t drawing any significant conclusion.
It is, however, making me think. A lot.
