Wandering Chopsticks

I'm so glued to all your Laos posts. Everything is so new and fascinating to me. I don't even know were to start commenting, just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy every post.


Ah, now that picture of the "hops" makes more sense!


Very cool! We did a cooking class in Oaxaca, and one of the best parts about it was a market visit. I found that I got much more out of touring the market with a local than I would if I had visited on my own.


Ditto what WC said.


this looks like paradise. I love food markets.

I went on xishuangbanna (south china) and saw a livestock auction.

Did you eat the balut?


I always enjoy your photos of markets! Can't wait to hear the rest of this!


Hi WC - Thanks so much. These posts have been kinda difficult for me to write....I want to get it just right.

Hi Jan - I'm glad it helped to clear things up.

Hi Mike - Yes, nothing like a guide to provide all the color and background.

Thanks Carol!

Hi Katie - We love food markets too! No livestock being sold here, but we saw livestock being sold during our visits to Can Cau & Bac Ha Markets in Vietnam. You might enjoy those posts:

And also our visit to Luang Prabang's Fresh Market:

We ate "balut" during our visit to Sapa, and I've had it once back home in Hawaii.

Hi Kat - Thanks!


Another interesting day tagging along in Luang Prabang! All of the stuff at the market is so fascinating, it's so different from the markets over here.


Hi FH - Totally different indeed.


That was an awesome read! By the way, fertilized duck or chicken eggs (aka Balut) are called "Khai Luke" in Lao, but it's usually spelled as "Khai Look" or "Khai Luk".


Hi Steven - I'm glad you enjoyed the post.
