Yesterday was a little more chilled and I’m all for that.
I find Steemfest events totally exhausting unless you young which I’m not.
Some weeks before Steemfest, @livinguktaiwan requested someone fetch her some Twinnigs tea from the UK as it costs 4x as much over here.
I volunteered as there were very few of us attending this year.
I handed @livinguktaiwan her ‘posh tea’ yesterday and she gifted me back some pineapple cake which I will save until I get back to the UK.
It looks equally’posh’, she needn’t have bought it me but it was a lovely gesture.
Steemfest does forge these human relationships which are special and now I’m connected to her on WhatsApp as well as the blockchain.
These alleys are not just for people but anything than can drive through them.
If cars could then they would. I’m amazed there’s not more accidents and it reminds me of the UK before all the safety precautions were added years ago.
@goblinknackers wasn’t so taken with the meat content or should I say fish. I didn’t think it was too bad myself and downed the lot.
@elizacheng and me had some coffee from a vendor just opposite the noodle place but the tea looked more interesting.
It was mainly ice and I was fearful of trying some due to the water but 24 hours later I’m feeling fine.
I’m assuming the tea vendors are a couple and worked well together to make this orange looking drink for me.
After paying over 300BAHT daily for the hotel breakfast which I don’t really rate too highly it was a nice change to get something at a 90% reduction.
Tropical fruit is cheap here. A bagful of jack fruit cost a fraction of the price in the UK.
My wife @bingbabe loves the stuff as well as all this food that is alien to most westerners such as pigs blood and feet.
The locals here appear to be very industrious and the competition high.
Everywhere you look vendors are selling everything but the kitchen sink.
I just hope we don’t get into any trouble.
I don’t know the trespass laws in Thailand and we may have to cross some palms with silver to gain entrance.
There several of us going so no Tuk tuks today though the location is quite close.
I still have a ton of Thailand content but I will have to wait for my return to the UK. Creating on a phone is not much fun.
