Last week I was in Thailand on a business trip. Before you get the idea that it’s fun to travel for work, let me tell you that, when you arrive, have to adjust to the time zone, are only there during working days without a weekend to go sight-seeing, it’s really just work.
I have incredibly nice colleagues in Thailand, and because I don’t drive there (NO WAY am I going to try driving in that chaos!), and there is no canteen at this facility, they take me (and any other foreign visitors) out to lunch every day. What a treat!
We have everything from expensive (relatively) sushi, to the famous 1 euro lunch – both are delicious. I tried to take photos at every meal, but sometimes just forgot. Below are the food photos from last week. Thai people like their food, and for very good reason. It’s the best cuisine I have ever tried.
My favorite lunch of the week was this fish and noodle soup. It was not terribly hot spicy, but was full of amazing flavors that I can’t list here because I don’t know what they were. There were pieces of veg in the soup that I’d never eaten before. Just delicious.
We went out together one night for dinner. Along with all the good food, the last was the best. Simple, fresh mango in slices, with sweet sticky rice on the side with coconut milk to pour over. I have never in my life had mango that tasted this good. So THIS is what a mango is supposed to taste like! Ah!
And here are some other pics from the week. I don’t know when I’ll be going back to Thailand. Probably later this year. DB has to come too next time. I’ll save up my appetite!
