Fotocrônica: Off a Truck

There is nothing in this world like fresh, ripe pineapple.  Sweet, juicy, sunshine.  Today’s deal was five pineapples for R$5.00 (less than USD$2.50).

Once there were five, now there are four.  Yum.

How did we get such an amazing price? They were sold to us off a truck traveling through town.  In Brazil you often get deals like this.  A trucks flips over, cargo is tipped, and it’s sold at a steal.  Or so they say.  It reminds me of my social work days where the homeless clients would show up in the shelter with a brand new item.  Where did they get it?  “Found it in a dumpster” was usually the answer.  Where did they get it?  “Fell off a truck.” It could happen.  Accidents happen all the time. Pass the pineapple.
