I got a list of restaurants and eat outs I want to try next, I try to go out every night during my 6 week visit, usually with the local teachers from the schools I visit. You get a better idea of what the local eat.

Any Issan eatery that I should try.

Its great to get a phone line on and get on the net here in the Outback, only problem it only works every 3 or 4 days so I getting my worth of say in while the phone lines are working. And they want to sell Telstra.AU

She is from way out in the sticks where i guess they have to eat anything that moves to get some protein.Desperately poor out there and the family lived in a hut the size of a garden shed in the UK.She even barbequed those giant geckos you get on the houses.

The ant eggs I can cope with, actually not an unpleasant taste, it is the 'flying things' that I cannot manage - all those legs:shock: ....two days later I am still picking them out of my teeth...just as well that I gather that dental costs are cheap... :D

Be glad you guys didn't find the Phillipines before Thailand. In the PI they are a delicasy (mispelled) called Baluts. They like them and think they are great. When a ship came into the docks that had a filipino crew they would bring these out to restock the ship. Never did we have a problem with the dockmasters eating on these ships. I did but made it known NO BALUTS :shock:
