Betel leaf

What an enticing way to display this vine leaf, in a market at Magwe Myanmar. Betel leaf can be used to wrap foods such as peanuts or shrimps for a nutritious snack, cooked or added to salads. Not to be confused with betel nut which is the fruit of the Areca palm.

Pattern and colour wherever I look.
