  1. Hi all.

    Ok, finally another thread about SE Asia... because I'm sure you've all been waiting with baited breath...:er:

    These are interesting impressions ... sometimes I am glad there are no smells coming with the pics, I am not sure the smell was all that nice in the section of the butchers' market - but then fish markets in Spain have been worse...

    Will you be back home in time for our meet-up? I still assume you're coming! Or are you back home already and not posting from there?
     
  4. I'm back, I'm still hoping to come.

    Great series....realy captures the culture of modern day/ everyday Thailand.

    That being said....

    Maybe I'm just a soft American but two words come to mind when looking at the "butcher" pictures......FOOD POISINING"...... the aparent lack of refrigeration and snaitary protection for the raw meat is frightning.

    I wouldn't feed that to my cat.

  9. Actually... all that stuff is sitting on ice, and was slaughtered that day, or the day before. Also, the cattle is fed considerably less antibiotics, hormones, and pesticide-treated grain... as such, it's actually healthier than US beef. Of course, it's a question of how you prepare it, and what your system is used to. Simply put, Montezuma's Revenge, the ever-popular holiday reminder, never afflicts the locals.

    Wow, looks like you had so many photo ops. I love the last one, if you look at the person sleeping and then the coca cola poster on the wall beside them, it looks like the people in the poster are giggling at the person sleeping. Very funny. :lmao:
     
  12. I didn't even really notice that, think I'm gonna see if I can get a decent crop out of that... thanks Renair!
