So today we had our 5th real school day here in Thailand out of the 21 days we have stayed here. Quite a large change of pace and the whole week consists of schooldays that last from 9-19 basically. We are however going on a Spa trip on Thursday and to China Town on Friday, strictly for educational purposes though.
After we had freshened ourselves up after the Thai boxing class we went to the small market situated next to our apartment complex. The market has been closed for the last two weeks, due to school examinations and holidays, so it was a pleasant surprise that it was open now again. I had some fried vegetables (I believe it included some flowers as well) and fried chicken. For once I got a portion that i could consider large and for the first time during this exchange my stomach felt really filled with food.
There's also a guy making some really delightful fried pastries of some kind right by the street corner, I think the pastries are of Indian origin. Had some the other night and it was puffy and crispy at the same time. The skills of the guy who makes them is most impressive though, however he has probably made a couple of them throughout his life.
We went for some dessert slushies at the cow-bar as well, quite sure that's not the official name of the place but the theme of the place would make that name suitable.
Now for some planning of my next large trip I'm taking in about 2 weeks.
