圣塞巴斯蒂安是一个旅游城市,其试管婴儿诊所和非本土植物每年都会吸引成千上万的游客。在与Shashi的交谈中,我开始将生育治疗活动与香蕉植物的繁殖方式联系起来。我想知道,圣塞巴斯蒂安的人们是否知道这些植物最初是如何到达那里的。谁会认为了解一种作为花园装饰的植物的起源很重要呢?而谁能想到其产物却成为了暴力、腐败和剥削的原因呢?

San Sebastian is a tourist city, whose IVF clinics and non-native plants attract thousands of tourists every year. Speaking with Shashi, I started making connections between fertility treatment campaigns and the way banana plants reproduce. I wanted to know if the people of San Sebastian knew how the plants had gotten there in the first place. Who would consider it important to know about the origins of a plant that serves as garden decoration? A plant whose product has been the cause of violence, corruption, and exploitation?
