Mamey (mammee or mammee apple) is a very delicious fruit beacause its smell is pleasant and appetizing. When unripe, the fruit is hard and heavy but its flesh slightly softens when fully ripe. Beneath the skin, the flesh can have various textures (crispy or juicy, firm or tender).
One mamey costs $0.4 dollar, people like to buy it at the streets and walk eating the fruit.

What really annoys me about my city

Sometimes people forget to keep the history of our city, many old colonial houses is being destroy or rebuilt without considering the old shape. Nobody say anything about this. For example in this pic, this old house was an restaurant now it's a barber and the window was destroyed to make a door... an ugly metal door.
Today, city bloggers around the world show the theme "what annoys you most in your city"... it's an oportunity to see one theme in many blogs ^^
