Banana transport

Banana transport

I spotted this jeepney while travelling on the island Leyte, in the Visayas region of the Philippines. I wonder how they can stack so many bananas on the roof of their vehicle, and then not lose any!

One of them is the Parroquia del Patriarca San Abraham, on the Jaume Vicens I Vives street. A detail of the white church building is pictured on today's photo.
