I love these pictures because I love banana leaves. Just don't wear fancy clothes around them and slice them open. Why do you ask? They secrete a sticky sugary liquid that once it lands on your clothes will stain your clothes brown and that stain will never, and I mean never wash out. That is why in Puerto Rico they say they have "la mancha de platano," or the plantain stain. People ask each other about their plantain stain, metaphorically of course! Lol!
