Banana Processing

Thursday, June 4, 2009

On our 8th day here was a special day. We got to got to a banana processing factor. It was amazing that there was so many bananas. I have not seen so many bananas I my entire life. I did not know that bananas where flowers did you know that. On our way to see these bananas we got to ride on a banana transport wagon. We were the first people to ride on this wagon. Then we got to go to a waterfall and there was a spider about 3 inches wide and 3 and a half inches long. After that we had a 2 hour bus ride to get to reef HQ. At the end of the day we got to practice snorkeling and it was really cold. It was a fun day and also cool.

I didn't know that bananas were flowers.
I have learned so many things from the blogs and tweets all of you have posted. Thanks for taking the time to do them, it has been a great deal of fun following all of you on your trip in Australia.
Was the transport wagon a new piece of equipment on the banana farm or do people not normally ride on it?
