Yup, four white pineapples for a dollar - they're cheaper than golds here, actually, because the locals consider them to be inferior (they're soooo wrong!
) Golds are typically 2-3 for a dollar, for nice-sized fruits. Both types of pineapple are actually on the expensive end, because we're in volcanic eruption of Tungurahua here at the moment (yet again). This means that less produce comes through the danger zone, and what does come is more costly.
I watched my favourite baby bananas go from 25-50 cents for a hand of about 20 to $1 for the same amount in the space of one week! I'll also see corn, potatoes, and other dinner staples go up as the crops are wiped out by the ash. I'm worried for my friends closer to the volcano - some towns are being evacuated because this eruption is more severe than the ones we've had in the previous year or two.
