Wats and FOOD

It's the rainy season here, but that didn't stop us from heading out with umbrellas to visit local wats, or holy sites, and the Grand Palace.

For me the highlight of the morning was a steaming bowl of noodle soup in a little alley. The soup was a rich broth chock full of thin noodles, fried garlic, shrimp dumplings, pork balls, and some sort of green vegetable, to which we added vinegar and crushed red pepper. The best lunch ever even if his picture of me is GROSS!

As we reached the bottom of our bowls, a vendor came by selling this freshly picked fruit. For under $1 we had dessert. The soup was $1.50 a big bowl.

I made the mistake of coming back to the hotel and taking a nap. Jet lag is a force to be reckoned with. But I am now up ready for dinner, of course.

Brock is full of ideas to make our stay here memorable and fun. Tomorrow we go to the market. Sunday is our first cooking class.

What kind of fruit is that? Rambutan?

I actually kind of love that black and white picture. It feels timeless.
