it's my first time in thailand, and i can't get over how modern it is. not even a single dirt road! and people seem to obey traffic rules! thailand is an easy place to love because it's so similar to so many other modern countries. there's some kind of street fair tonight, with people selling handicrafts and food for blocks and blocks. i sampled some street food, 10-25 cents a serving, you can't go hungry here. but the people, so many! i started to get a headache from the crowd. maybe i'm just too used to the sparse settlement of laos and cambodia. if bangkok is worse than this, i will hide inside my guesthouse the whole time.
i found a vendor that sold fried insects. i bought a bag of crickets and a bag of mealyworms for 50 cents. i plan on trying them out tonight, late night snack on the balcony, listening to the geckos.
