Good day and welcome to video blog 14!!!
This video blog shows some of the last week with my good friends the Wells!
I hope you enjoy!
Todays blog starts with 2 early morning starts to downtown LA for some skateboard action. Cruising around getting a few tricks as well as a good slam. Its funny it doesn’t look like to hard of a fall but i got wrecked, my foot is very swollen and on day 3 I still cannot put weight on it.
One of the mornings I went to the LA Wholesale Produce Market and picked up 2 big jackfruits. They had them there for .99 cents a lb, 35 lb worth was 34 65! We open on up at the Well’s house, Jack doesn’t want to try it out, but sure likes the smell! Jackfruit is the biggest fruit that grows, and can get up to 100 lb. In the countries they are grown (most tropical zones) the whole fruit is sued. The pulp for food, the seeds are often boiled and taste like potatoes, and the natural latex surrounding the pods has been used for glue and to patch and waterproof boats and other textiles.
I just me a new friend named Kat, she is a graphic designer that I feel blessed to be now working with 🙂 We went out for a sweet picnic while people watching on hollywood Blvd.! We enjoyed jackfruit cherimoya and baby bananas while we watched Snoopy from Peanuts dance on the stars 🙂
The end of my last evening In LA was enjoyed with Kat and another new friend Ben, with a simple salad of romaine, celery, cucumber noodles, tomatoes and a thick dressing of tomato mango celery. mmmmmm.
My next blog will be coming from sunny Maui! see ya soon!
