There are thousands of little stands, mostly selling handicrafts. If you stop to look at something, you get a huge smile and get handed a giant calculator with the price for what you are looking at on it. This is a very slow season here,and due to the political unrest or the alignment of the planets, it is a very low low season. A 6:1 farong like me gets a lot of attention. I only bought one thing, something for Mary Ann that I think she will like. It cost me 100 baht, less than $3. There were exotic old ladies in very exotic hats that were selling carved frogs with a wooden stick you rubbed against them and they sound just like the frogs on Hospital Point. All of a sudden there three of them following me down the aisle and it got quite loud.
The restaurant was pretty good, not great, but a huge menu of dishes I never had before.
Almost every booth had a TV with the Chile Vs. Honduras WC game playing. I would walk by and go CHILE! CHILE! and everyone agreed with me. I don’t think they can say Honduras.
OK, I have bored you enough today, I’ll bore you more in a day or two. Thanks for reading!
