The other day I saw a little note book and I decided to take a second look. I am a big list maker, so little notebooks are wonderful and I have them everywhere to try to keep me more organized- try being the key word! Well to my surprise it was banana paper.
Bananas don't degrade very well and the fields were often burned (if memory serves correct) and as bananas are a major cash crop in that country, they were trying to figure out ways to go green with the waste and that was back in '93!
Such a cool little find, and it made me pull out my old photo album from the trip and reminisce. In Costa Rica, at that time, things ran at a slower pace. The locals called it Tico Time. I have to admit, it was a nice memory and I enjoyed looking through my album.
I hope this finds you all happily remembering and mailing!
