talat warawot (warawot market)


after voting, we went to the market (pictured on the left).

at the market, you can get virtually anything, as the picture (below) shows.

imagine this line at your local fast-food hangout: "would you like grasshoppers, larvae, or grubs with that?"

  1. I love going to other people's markets, and I often wonder what they think when they come to mine (probably have to stifle a yawn).

    I feel quite certain that, if I were a first timer in an American supermarket, I would think that Americans are inordinately fond of cereal. I am completely buffaloed by the cereal aisle every time I return.

  2. Grasshoppers, grubs, larvea or Willy's chicken parm? That's a tough one. Sorry Willy.

  3. I remember coming back to the USA after a year in Korea, and then going to a Publix supermarket in Florida.

    The first thing that struck me was how many, many, many choices we have in the US.

    We truly live on an abundant planet, if/when abundance is cultivated.

    And, Judy -- please tell Willy to get his cooking apron ready for Christmas!!

  4. I don't want to disagree with you on your own page (that seems rude), but I think 'we' are all paying the price for the inexpensive abundance of food through obesity, degraded soil and water, high fuel prices, and ever narrowing food choices (compared to what used to exist in the world).

    The abundance is killing us.

    I agree we need to save the self space for a wider variety of liquid bread.
