While wandering through the streets in Kerala, I unexpectedly came across this part of the fruit market. I love to stroll without a destination, taking in whatever comes into view. Seeing mountains of grapes piled in pleasing and neat arrangements was a surprise because I didn’t realize that this fruit was so prevalent here. I always associated Kerala with coconuts and bananas but not grapes. I don’t think that too many foreigners have visited this market and I got my share of smiles from both the vendors and other shoppers which is always a good sign, especially for taking photographs. And I had a few smiles of my own when I tasted the freshly squeezed grapes that got turned into the most delicious juice that I have ever tasted.
