A week or so ago, maybe more, I shared the wonders of coconut water on a hot day in the tropics. Here's a common scene from around the Queen's Park Savannah in Port of Spain. There are several trucks with the bed full of coconuts. Guys with big machetes sell them cheaply and expertly hack off the top in quick order.
Since I was a tourist he handed me a straw for my drinking pleasure but most folks would drink it straight from the nut. As a bonus you get a rare picture of me with very short hair....which is a story in itself.
