Hello Angels,

One of the best thing about living in Italy is a lot of fruits and vegetables. There is only one vegetable that I can’t find in Italy which is okra.

Okra is very popular in Turkey and there are plenty of okra in summer time. I love okra so much and I can only eat in Turkey. I looked for almost every market in Rome but I didn’t find it.
