Dear Julius,

   In Southeastern and Central Brazil we eat the leaves of Xanthosoma 
sagittifolium (people call it "Taioba") and it is delicious (I liked it 
even when I wasn't an aroid specialist!).

Dear Eduardo!   Good to hear from you!   Please send me your E-mail address, 
as I sent you a long letter a week ago but it was returned to me yesterday as 
"address unknown".  I sent it to --eggon@guarany.cpd.und.br   , and like I 
said, it came back.  I will re-send it as soon as I hear from you.  
  I hope that you enjoyed my discription of the Trinidadian dish, "calaloo", 
but wonder what our Australian friend must think!  Come visit me sometime and 
I`ll prepare some for you, I promise that you`ll love it!!
  I look forward to hearing from you--- Julius.     ju-bo@ msn.com
