Our Talisay Family

You have met Sophia. This is her mother Clarissa. Clarissa and her mother Tessie are the caretakers of the Post House, and we are spoiled by their care.
Clarissa and I are shopping together. The fruits that look like big olives are ciruelas, like a kind of plum when they are a ripe maroon.
The yellow balls behind are lanzones and they are divine. The season for them is long:we've been eating them by the kilo since March, during the shoot. Like lychees, maybe. You break open  the peel and eat little perfumed sections that are almost clear. Avoid the bitter pit.
It's fun to shop with Clarissa. She's in charge.
