Banana Trees

100_2115One interesting thing that I noticed is that many homes in the city (Nairobi) have banana trees growing in their compounds (yards).  I am not sure if bananas actually grow on those trees in the city, I have just never seen one with actual bananas.  Something also different is that in Kenya, we eat cooked bananas.  Not plantains, but green bananas, I had missed those. Another kind of bananas that I have not seen here (US) are the tiny bananas. We call them sweet bananas. At times we would find two of them stuck together (cojoined for lack of a better word) and we were told that if you ate those, you would give birth to twins. I should have eaten those… 🙂
