One of my original team of mango pickers.


Picking mangoes comes with the risk of getting an allergic reaction, which presents as a rash which can spread across most of your body. Continuing to pick and not getting treatment for the rash can lead to nasty things like blood poisoning, so, as soon as someone gets any sign of a rash their time is up as a mango picker. After a few weeks Nicole got the rash and had to go.


She was however in the fortunate position of going out with one of the farm staff and so landed a cooshty position in the packing shed. Such is life.
