Local seasonal vegetables are always the tastiest! Not to mention most environmentally friendly!

Great picture, those oranges look great. Would they be grown in Pakistan? It’s good that he didn’t mind you taking his photo.

A fine protrait you have here. What is to be gained, the gentleman asked. Thats a good question. Perhaps we take our photos to share our cultures with each other Hopefully to gain a better understanding and sense of community. Perhaps peace.
