Snap Shot from Around the World


A coconut village in the jungles near the Mekong Delta spend all day making sweet coconut candy to sell. Workers mix, stretch, cut and wrap the candy by hand.

A basket of empty coconut shells lay discarded and forgotten.

Workers wrap the sweet treat in an edible rice paper and then a plastic wrapper for double the protection.

You can also remove the coconut meat from the shells and instead of turning it into juice for candy, you can leave it out to dry and eat it like a dried fruit.

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts!

Coconut drinks are sweet and also a diuretic so don't drink before jumping on the plane ride home.
