Re: Litchis


Man, I wish I could just drop in down there for a week. I love mangos, but
didn't know why I so seldom got a good one here. The Thai restaurant served
sticky rice with mangos when they first opened. Heavenly. Never saw it
again, unfortunately. When we visited the California kids one spring we
bought mangos & strawberries. There's another great combination.
