We all went out for a brief tiyao (walk) this morning to replenish our supply of fruits and vegetables.
The BTS (sky train, the Bkk version of a subway) has been closed for three days due to protesting by the yellow shirts.
We’ve all been advised to stay close to home – Sue will probably not go to work tomorrow, the loaned work vehicle not withstanding.
But still, life in this neighborhood goes on: the stalls are lined up selling fruit and roasted baby octopus and the ice cream man makes his way up every soi, hitting each construction site.
We hailed him (he was on foot), so that I could try what Sue calls an “old-fashioned” ice cream sandwich. The sandwich bit is taken quite literally, and my coconut ice cream (only one flavor) was served on a fresh baked roll!
