This coconut vendor was one of dozens we saw along the roadside. They all looked just like this one -- a barefoot woman, with
a huge stalk of coconuts, and a very sharp knife.
For a couple of rupees (less than 1 US penny) she would give you a coconut, cut some holes in it and place a plastic straw
The coconuts were not fully ripe, thus the liquid was almost clear, not the whitish liquid we are accustomed to seeing.
This was a tasty and refreshing snack -- much better than drinking Coke or Pepsi.
