The Crystal Cruise line could easily rename itself “The Fruit Cruise” due to the plethora of fruit at every single turn:
Fruit buffet table.
Another restaurant, another day… but still the fruit makes its presence known.
One of my favorite desserts, because of its beauty, was fresh fruit in a coconut shell. Sadly, you couldn’t eat the coconut meat; it was too hard. But the plum slices were especially ripe.
(Buying berries in Aix-en-Provence)
It was hard to choose, but I finally decided on raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries. These juicy gems were well worth the expensive price. I ate some raspberries right away, and my sister and I brought the others back to our mini-fridge to snack on during the next few days… not like we needed to, since there were so many berries already offered on the boat. But hey, it’s not every day one gets to buy fresh berries from a farmer’s market in Provence (well, unless you’re lucky enough to live there).
Below is one of my favorite pictures from the trip. Walking along Las Ramblas, in Barcelona, one could find all sorts of costumed people– an alien, a gladiator, a devil, a human tree (?!)…
And thus ends a very fruity post.
