This is what I’ve talked about when I’ve mentioned eating green mango. I’m on vacation in Cartagena, Colombia and here, they sell it in little carts all around town. This man was somewhere on the wall that surrounds the old city in Cartagena.
In the steaming heat, the green mango is refreshing. It comes in little plastic bags, pit and all and is sprinkled — or more like coated — with salt. Then the man juices the lime by sliding it down the edge of his knife, dripping it into the bag.
We ate the mango as we walked around taking pictures and quickly discovered that we should’ve also bought an Aguila (Colombian beer) from the man standing beside the mango man, for this was one salty mango. Oh, but it was delicious.
