About Bangkok and its streetfood...

Once you start to discover the famous "city of angels" (as the Thai capital is called), the first thing one see/smells and perceives is the Bangkoks streetfood. Food stalls are literally everywhere offering fresh fruits, tons of sweets or simply grilled meat&sausages. In the lunch break one may also get a whole warm dish (soups, curry or fried rice)...People also eat in the street on the sidewalk, where vendors oten install not only their mobile kitchen but also few tables and chairs for their guests. Every cook collects very careful the made garbage as there are big fines for rubbish on the street...
And in order to wish you all HAPPY holidays, some "tropical" decoration from here too:-)


...and as a big elephant lover I had to take a pic of me with this huge, cute elephant too:-)

Excellent photos of street venders selling cooked food.I have happy memories of Bangkok, when I had to flee through the jungle from Vietnam to the safety of Bangkok in 1971. I found the people warm and hospitable, and I loved the food.
Best Wishes.

WOW! What great photos! I have to ask, "Are you afraid of eating the food that vendors serve on the streets?" I would be worried about getting sick from the different foods available.

Great photo of you next to the elephant!

Warm wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a grand New Year!

Hi Jana, I'm always amazed at your constant adventures. I feel as though I can stay at home, read your blog, and pretend I'm a world traveler through your photos and descriptions! It finally snowed in Breckenridge. Two grandchildren are visiting us this week, so we're skiing and having some fun. Happy Holidays to you from CO!

Loved your Sofia shots !

Prettige Kerstdagen en gelukkig Nieuw Jaar !
