As the typical Asian she is, my mother was determined to save money on bananas during our stay in Kathmandu. So much so, the poor fruit vendor outside our hotel, unimpressed with her haggling, pointed us into the direction of the local markets. As such, mama tan traipsed us outside our designated tourist domain in search of a bargain.
Surprisingly, it was rather difficult finding bananas, suggesting they are saved for us tourists, however we did eventually find them. Overall, we probably only saved about 50p but I’m sure mama tan was well chuffed.
