Burkina Faso Date

Burkina Faso Date
Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, West Africa
Tuesday, September 17, 2007

I believe these are Dates, a sweet type of dried Fruit sold in Bobo-Dioulasso and other cities here in Burkina Faso. I finally had a young boy offer me less than a kilo so I purchased a few.

A girls in Bobo is arranging the Dates, Cashew, and bags of coffee that are shipped by train from Cote d’Ivoire.

A picture of 100 CFA worth of Dates, this is about 20 cents USA and I suspect this is way over priced.

A nice change of snacks, there is this seed in the middle, healthy and I probably could carry in my backpack a few without worry of spoiling or starting to grow. Once had some Garlic that sprouted.
