I am curious about the coconut seller hidden in the middle of nowhere. The first time I noticed him, he had a cart full of coconuts. As carts can be moved I knew he was only stationed under the tree at the edge of the forest, for the morning. Like an ice-cream man he would move the cart to sell his wares.
A few months later, I spotted a table had been assembled, it was planted under the same tree, on stones to make it stable. The coconut business was expanding.
It has been a year or more now and the seller is settled, under the same tree, and has built himself a little shelter whilst the supply of coconuts has increased. Like my friend always explains,
“This is purely a case of demand and supply.”
That is why I am curious. Who stops their car to buy these fresh coconuts? I am asking this because the position of the stall is under the tree, right at the edge of the forest, beside a meandering road. Any form of life only happens opposite the cart…table…stall.
Across the road are some interesting story buildings. This area is residential so who buys the coconuts during the day? I never notice any cars stopping along the unsafe road. This is interesting as there seems to be a booming business, otherwise the cart would not have turned into an established mini mart with employees helping.
Maybe one day I will wait across the road for a little while and establish who the fans of the coconuts are.
