Crazy things at the market…

I went to the market in Bou Yai with some teachers at school and I got the opportunity to sample some of the local delicacies that can be found in Thai markets:

  Scorpian for dinner anyone? Kentucky Fried Bugs

I didn’t eat the scorpion but I did try a fried baby cricket.  It wasn’t as bad as I expected, it tasted like a garlicky chip….having said that, I was disgusted by the fact a little leg got stuck in my teeth so I doubt I will be eating fried crickets again in a hurry!
We also had a wander around the market and had some noodles for dinner (I picked out the bits of intestine, lumps of blood and chunks of liver).  I fed a baby elephant, watched our school team play volleyball, quickly checked out some Chinese opera and had a wander around the fair.  There is a special festival on at Bou Yai at the moment so the little town comes alive in the evenings.
