A great sense of community exists all over south east Asia through its day and night markets and ubiquitous street food. The locals enjoy some of the most delicious food employing traditional recipes handed down from generation to generation. One can palpably sense the camaraderie as friends and families gather for dinner and as many Thai and Vietnamese proudly told us in Bangkok and Hanoi, kitchens are largely decorative spaces as all meals are consumed at street food stalls. It infuses a warm feeling when viewed with a western perspective and if I had the fortune to possess a cast iron stomach I would have imbibed without inhibition. As is, I considered myself lucky that I got to use my visual and olfactory senses to absorb it all.
I thought I would share a view of what I observed and enjoyed over the past 20 days. Hope it provides mouthwatering viewing.
And more Bangkok!
Adios till next time from Beloved Bombay!
