Buffalo Market

by jeannabauer


A trip to the San Patong saturday market.
Up at 5 am & laughing with Thai cowboys by 7.

Cows tied by their noses, a pink buffalo & geese in baskets. Intense rooster examinations & rice sack cages. Big smiles on weathered faces entertained by our presence.

& for breakfast: raw buffalo meat garnished with larb (splashed with stomach bile), placenta soup, fermented tea leaves with salt & a quick shot of rice whisky with homemade herb bitters.
