FAMILY TRAVEL: Journey to the Source - COCONUT SPOONS
Saturday 27 November 1999
Buy a coconut spoon in the Maldives (for around Rf20, or pounds 1 each) and you can use it to bring back fond memories of tropical holidays while you whip up anything from a fruity blancmange to a deadly bacardi back home. If you wait until you're back in the UK, a similar spoon from the General Trading Company (144 Sloane Street, London SW1X, 0171-730 0411) costs pounds 7.25. Buy up 200 in the Maldives, sell them at a suitable profit in the UK (about pounds 5.50 each) and you could even make enough to pay for the current pounds 764.30 return flight from London Heathrow to Male on Emirates through Trailfinders (0171-938 3366).
