10th Feb Update

I'm in danger of not posting for the first time on my travels, so I thought I would share a couple of recent eats with you.

I had my first Thai Hot Pot the other day. You get a clay pot of broth bubbling over hot coals accompanied with some raw chicken, fish, noodles, vegetables and herbs. You then poach your own food to your liking. Lovely.

There is a crepe stall that appears at the end of my road each evening. Here is me indulging in a chocolate and banana pancake. There are no Thai words for pancake or chocolate, so it is pretty easy to order as you can speak English!

And finally, without sounding too over indulgent, here is a photo from a couple of days ago that I am rather pleased with. I think the work in the gym is improving my posture (usual slouch is absent) and my stomach is flatter.


  1. Very slim Ricardo. I maintain my theory that it is impossible not to lose weight in Thailand. Mainly because due to the combination street cooking and spiciness it is difficult to be anything other than "slightly loose" the whole time. The heat also suppresses appetite a bit, I think.

  2. Thanks for the image Blue Eyes!

    I think the heat does surpress the appetite. Thankfully I have avoided your other symptoms....
