In La Cote D'Ivoire they eat and drink many fruits. They eat bananas and pineapples, and love to drink coconut milk. The pictures you see above are the fruits the Ivory Coast people eat in very hot weather. Fruits are a very good source of refreshment and coolness when it gets really hot for the people. Many sales are made on the main street with fruits, where people trade and bargain their fruits for a living. The fruits are sold very cheap and people buy them because even though there are a lot of trees, shade only cools you for only a short while. These fruits are the main source of a snack and sometimes full meal.
