banana republic

Posted by PicasaI say, B1, these are times of terrible deprivation!
Bananas are $12 per kilo and have been so for months now, up from $2.
Grapes, from the US, why?, $17. We are so fortunate to have great fruit and vegetables.
Last March, cyclone Larry, destroyed the banana crops round Innisfail, Far North Queensland, and bananas are said to be in short supply.

Innisfail was truly an Art Deco town. It was rebuilt along those lines in the 1930s following a cyclone.
