Colombia has fantastic fruits. Already I’ve tasted a half-dozen fruit I’d never heard of before: lulo, guanabana, granadilla…

My favorite was cherimoya. Husband thinks it tastes like a combination of banana, pineapple, papaya, peach, and strawberry. I think it tastes like bubblegum. In any event, it’s delicious: soft and white, with a sherbet-like texture.

Vegetables are terrific, too. I’ve never eaten such delicious mushrooms. And the roasted corn is the best. Very chewy, with a popcorn taste. A bargain at about a dollar an ear, it beats energy bars as a biking snack!
