Meat for the masses...

Shopping for meat is a very unique experience here in Thailand. Upon first glance, I was appalled at how you purchase meat at the grocery stores here.   It just seemed so 'unhygienic' to me, laid out in the open like that.
But, I don't think Jon has any immediate plans of becoming a vegetarian (and neither do I for that matter) so I just had to 'go for it.'
So, here's to chicken... and every other kind of meat your heart desires.  Mmmm??  
Doesn't that just tantalize the taste buds? ;)

Hey, but at least it is refrigerated. We buy ours from a guy who sells it beside the road. Try to get it first thing in the morning. At first Ingrid was leery, but I said the people we buy cooked meat from beside the road buy it that way.. Just cook it well. (Which is hard for someone like me who likes his meat rare.)

Eeek!! Well-done for sure! We come from such a pre-packaged society-so that seems strange, indeed :)

Hey, Bonnie, I have a question for you. When you were in MTE how long was your internship?

I was checking to see if you would post a picture of your new nephew!

Rebekah-- Our internship was 6 months long. And I am waiting to post a picture of William until Jen gets a chance to do it first. It is her son after all :)
