He saw bananas growing on trees. There were a few horses. Some people had donkeys. Some people carried things on their heads. They could carry a lot! The stores were very different. They had outdoor markets. People sold their goods outside. Some on tables and some on the ground. The stores were not like our stores. They were only small little stands.
