The words of a man who is at peace.

Dinner for three at a street market in Chiang Mai including mango with sticky rice, two cokes and three bottles of water for about $5.

@GravitySucks - Forks? Really?

Most food is eaten with a spoon or the fingers. The forks tend to be used to push food onto the spoon. Chopsticks are used at some meals, especially for noodle dishes like pho-type dishes.  But yeah, I sneak in a forkful every once in awhile. I have nerve damage in my arms which makes chopsticks kind of clumsy if my neuropathy is acting wonky.

I am doing better than I expected. With the exception of two handfuls of Lays potato chips in the last week all I have eaten is Thai food or sushi. Eaten just about everything from just about everywhere. Except the bugs. I refuse to eat actual bugs. I did eat a tablespoon of spicy ant egg salad.

But no bugs. My friends have an affinity for silkworms. Not me.

@GravitySucks Holy Cow! Do vegetarians eat fried insects? Are insects meat?

@FISH I don’t eat insects or vegetarians so you will have to seek your answer elsewhere. I’m guessing insects are not meat though they are rich in protein.

I doubt there are many. I did see a veggie restaurant in Pai but Thais eat virtually everything that walks, crawls, flies or swims and some things that just lay there like mussels.

The Coke is the elephant in the room there. Other than that, delicious!

This summer I grew a mini lawn for me and my cats. To my surprise and delight a bunch of tomato plants came up. Obviously the previous owner had a garden at one time. See my little green babies?

But also three of these plants that were planted in a nice row. Broad green leaves that turn brown at edges then die but then new leaves keep coming in. Stalk is dark red.  I am a clueless city girl and have no idea what they are. I really didn't want to yank them out until I knew what they were. I tried Google image recognition but didn't work. Anybody have an idea of what they are?

I love plumeria. Beautiful fragrance. My neighbors have a plumeria "tree". Next time they cut it back I'm going to try to grow a cutting. The fringie things are really pretty. Your pics keep getting better and better

Hi TL, those kind of look like hydrangea plants that are trying to come up from the roots, though I am puzzled why the leaves keep dying back.  Too much sun, perhaps?  They do best in a shaded spot.  Maybe the previous owner planted them there and didn't have any luck with them and cut them back?  Ha, I'm just throwing out some wild guesses.  Thanks for the pics.

soo cool! I've never seen the plant before - only the fruit! Thanks Gravity!
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I was at a county fair last month when I spotted this unusual potted plant.  The label told me the name of it but I have forgotten what it was called.  Guess I should have wrote it down.
