Some more pictures from my trip to Thailand back in November, this time shots from a day market.
Open air markets are very popular in Thailand, seemed like anywhere I went there were multiple ones around. You could even find single vendors along the road selling stuff. Lots of them are similar to a farmers market here in the states. The vendors will have fresh produce and meats to sell. Other vendors will sell prepared foods you can eat there or take home for a meal later. This day market was near Chiang Mai when we were leaving the city in the morning.

The photo above is a vendor making fresh pork rinds. I was surprised to find that in Thailand! I had always thought of pork rinds as the snack you’d buy from gas stations along the interstate when taking a trip with your family.
Ah, and here are the bamboo worms! Yes, I did try them (along with other bugs too). They are fried up and when you eat them they mostly taste like popcorn/peanuts. Very airy inside and light, not a lot of substance to them when you are eating them.
