Notice how wet the roads are under the trees, they were like it on the way up there and still the same on the way back

Back in Huai Hom and I appear to have a young student

She is chatting away and no doubt telling me all about the beans she is pointing at

Mother and daughter, they take care of me today as her Aunt who usually does it has gone to Mae Sarieng, we probably passed each other on the journey

Back in Mae Sarieng and its one of the three afternoon markets today
Mae Sarieng 10/1/2014-img_3256.jpg
Some might find this a delicacy but the thought of eating it turns my stomach
Mae Sarieng 10/1/2014-img_3259.jpg
All this for 80 Baht at the market but I struggle to eat it all as I have picked up a bug and I feel really under the weather.
It certainly takes something to take my appetite away
