    fried bugs as a nutritious and tasty snack!

    > >
    Last month I was in Bangkok, Thailand to attend CITES CoP 16. One free afternoon (my only free afternoon) I took the skytrain out to the Chatuchak (weekend) marketóthe biggest weekend market in the world. This market is incredible: it is HUGE (according to Wikipedia it covers over 35 acres and contains more than 5,000 stalls); itís CROWDED. Itís a vast labyrinth of stalls, tiny shops and carts selling absolutely everything. Itís chaotic, confusing and utterly fascinating. I spent a couple of hours going through the live animals and tropical fish area. >>

    The afternoon I was there the temperature was 35įC (95įF) and 100% humidity (or so it felt) and in the market there wasnít a breath of air. After a couple hours I was absolutely dyingóI desperately needed air conditioning, a shower and a gallon of water to drink. When I exited the market I came across a cheerful vendor who was selling a variety of fried insects as tasty snacks! I took the opportunity to take a few photos for my blog before I dashed back to the hotel to cool off... >>

    Below is a nice photo of the vendor and a couple of examples of what he had to offer.

    But how did they taste? That's the question
