Top Banana

Okay it has been a while since the last post; and as usual it is late in the evening so Diplomonkey needs to get out a quickie post before he falls asleep.  Otherwise I guess folks will wonder if Diplomonkey has survived yet another trip to Ecuador.  Type bad monkey, type…

Babahoyo rice field shack.

This time around old Captain Jack went to Guayaquil and out into the wilds of Babahoyo.   Nothing quite like speeding down dusty back roads in a black, unmarked armored car.  Swish go rice and cane fields in a blur.

Eventually Diplomonkey arrives at the banana plantation. Thousands upon thousands of hectares of the green not so little things being picked, processed, and shipped to the four corners of the globe.
