Today was going to be a nice, slow, layover day and it turned out to be sort of a resort high activity day. This whole area is sort of like a resort with all kinds of supervised activities. We started out going to cooking school which started out with a trip to the local market. I think for shock value as much as anything. And the market is sort of shocking – it is like a giant, very diverse, farmers market. The quality of the food looks great (although I am not much of a judge on what high quality dog meat looks like). Anything you can think of is for sale here (or, at least, anything I can think of).
From fresh water eels to eggplants,
chickens, rabbits, and doves.
Then it was off to a village out of town where we watch a demo
and cooked our own lunch
and ate it outside with a view that is becoming normal.
