Thai New Year

Thai New Year

Today is the Thai new year. I was supposed to meet up with my new TravBuddy friends at the Brick Bar on Khao San Road, but after reading the news this morning, I’m a little scared to go. Roads have been blocked off by red shirts and several people have been killed or injured. I’d just as soon avoid that mess, even if it means missing out on the water fights. If I were younger, I might still consider it, but I’m too old to try and run if I need to get away quickly.

I walked over to the street market and picked up one of those tasty deserts I had the other night. I don’t know what they are called, but they sure are good! They are like a light dough that is fried and filled with a custard. There seems to be two halfs that they put together after they have cooked on one side. I would love to learn how to make them.

Tomorrow night I go to Siam Niramit for dinner and a show. I have nothing planned for Wed. but I may go shopping for another bag to carry home my loot. Otherwise, I’ll need to leave some old clothes behind. On Thu. I’m taking a Thai cooking class in the morning at Bai Pai where I’ll learn to make chicken in pandanus leaf, papaya salad, prawn in tamarind sauce, and roasted duck red curry.
