The Market! or Meat on a Stick!

Bangkok is one of the hottest cities on earth.  The Chatuchak Market is one of the hottest places in Bangkok.  Thousands of people, blazing sun, and lots of concrete and pavement. Over 9000 stalls.   It’s a bit like shopping in a volcano.  But, it is one of the places featured in the book “1000 places to see before you die”, so we went.

Above:  This is Paella Guy.  I assume he has a name, but I’ve never heard it.  He’s been cooking up big pans of paella since before I started coming to Bangkok.  He’s quite a showman.  He did a little magic for us. He’s no David Copperfield, but not bad.

New Tradition!  Pork on a Stick at the Chatuchak Market!  We’re calling it “The Ormbsee Challenge”.  Ask him why.

That’s pretty much it.  After the market the gang has been lounging by the pool.  Tonight, because there really is no such thing as too many dumplings, we’re going back to Din Tai Fung.

See you tomorrow!
