Trying new fruit

I saw a bizarre red fruit in a street stall while going for a morning walk and I knew I had to try it. After some haggling I walked back to the hostel with it. The lady at reception informed me it’s a dragon fruit. I’d seen them in China but never eaten one before.

A very strange looking piece of fruit…

I cut it open and was instantly impressed with the incredibly rich colour. The deep purples, pinks and reds are visually quite impressive and foreign looking.
