When we got to Pai, Thailand 3 months ago it was at the beginning of the slow season for tourism. I thought we were so lucky since most of the time busy season means more expensive prices and over-crowded streets.
Busy season started almost over night the last week we were there. It was AMAZING! If we ever go back to Pai it will be in busy season. The majority of the time we were there only about 10 street vendors were out every night with yummy street food, when we left there was over 100. It was a like a fair every night and we had a blast.
before I got started on my eating bonanza I got a Big Gulp
Jarrett has decided he likes Papaya salad
it is a green/not ripe papaya shaved thinly and then mixed with spices, vegetables, and sauce
after Jarrett picked out all of his veggies and how spicy he wanted it, she tossed it all in and mixed it together
right into a banana leaf bowl
Conner’s favorite chicken-on-a stick lady
she even has plain noodles, a match made in heaven for my brown-eyed boy
my mushrooms and Peyton’s corn getting buttered and grilled
making a perfectly healthy vegetable unhealthy-corn, butter, sugar, and sweetened condensed milk-delish
cars, people and mopeds share the street-the people get the right of way
Roti-a soft dough filled with eggs, cheese, bananas, or whatever you want, fried crispy and then topped with sweetened condensed milk, yes even the egg ones
the boys enjoying their chocolate roti
eating my street food on the street
even though we were always stuffed full, Peyton and I stopped for a fruit smoothie every night. Mango-passion fruit
busy season in Pai rocks!
