I'm still getting caught up - and apparently will be for years - on travel blog posts. I think I can hundreds of posts waiting to be completed, which I guess, honestly, is representative of a life lived well (or irresponsibly). Here are some pictures of our students from the last trip to Zanzibar enjoying their first taste of fresh coconut. Steve and I were always pushing them on the students because, beyond being delicious, they're a great source of electrolytes. You can buy them on the street for a pittance, although we went straight to the source.
|There is some preparation, which we usually just requires a very sharp knife (which we also kept away from the students). Per usual, Steven was front and center for any activity.|
|The coconuts were a tremendous success. Left to right: Emily, Claire, Caitlin, Genevieve, Montse.|
|Even Max, who only grudgingly agreed to try the coconuts, ended up hungrily drinking three of them.|
|And so the Sisterhood of the Travelling Students and Delicious Coconuts was born.|
