we went to a market on the outside of viengchan - going to markets are one of my favorite things by the way - everything about it.
well, really this is my favorite thing about the market. i have eaten mangosteens so many times in the past week, i shoulda had my fill, but i don't think it's possible. if i was gonna get the option for a last meal before i died, mangosteen would be on the menu. and this might delay my executioners until they could get a trip to Laos to pick it up for me.
all the different types of sticky rice that you can find in Laos. in the usa, you can't get sticky rice from Laos, just what is imported from thailand.
so there are not only crickets, but crickets and crickets, and more types of crickets. (each type of crickets have their own name, and each has a different flavor. i know, because i tried one of each until i settled on my two favorites that i purchased to take with me. i couldn't find cool ranch doritos in Laos, so this really is the next best thing,)
some real nice tib khao. i bought a couple since the ones the sell in the usa (imported from thailand again) are real ugly and cheaply made.
