Ughh... we are 15 days into 2012 and I am still talking about New Year's.
But...we made it to the 2 weeks lasting New Year's market and actually had a camera along.
Thais are masters of "food on the go". You can get almost anything on a stick, be it sausages, meatballs, chicken, or also fruit like watermelon, pineapple, and grilled bananas.
Don't like wearing in dress shoes? How about the pre-worn alternative?
Conny, the following shoe pictures are for you. You would love the market here :)
A calculator, the bigger the better, is an essential of market life here. Even if customers don't speak Thai and merchants not much English, numbers punched into a calculator bridge any language barrier.
Not so big on food on a stick? How about some bite-sized delicacies?
A smorgasbord of fried insects: crickets, worms, larvae...
I almost got in trouble for taking a picture of these little rabbits. Only after taking it did I see the sign asking for "no photo".
The skilled artwork displayed in a huge variety of teak wood furniture was really impressive, and also inviting to sit down for a breather.
The natural growth of the trees is used to create tables and benches.
