Trip to a Market in Phuket

After eating our expensive hotel breakfast we figured we’d better be smart and buy something from the market instead to store in the fridge. We ended up with some oranges, dragon fruit, bananas, rose apples, grapes and pineapple and almonds. I have to tell you: the fruit in Phuket is the best I have ever tasted! It was so incredibly juicy and sweet, almost like candy! I kid you not. And the rose apples, which I had for the first time, (pictured lower left) were so delightfully crisp and mildly sweet that they quickly became me new favorite fruit. I was dismayed to discover though that although they are native to Southeast Asia, they are nowhere to be found in Manila. 😦

As always, strangers everywhere are drawn to Coco. In the market some women selling an assortment of colorful flowers put some in her hair and when Coco inquired about a certain fruit, the seller peeled one for her to taste.

     

The sights and the sounds and the colors and the smells delighted and fascinated us. Boxes of all sizes crammed full of fresh vegetables and fruits, packets and packets of roasted nuts, dried fishes, seeds and colorful flowers, chicken satay and other prepared foods, and mounds and mounds and mounds of curries.

Oh, Thailand, I love, love, love your food!!!!!!!!!
