This morning we spent what was called A Day in the Life of a Western Thai Community. We started at a local market. Each of us was given a vocabulary list and one item to purchase. Trying to communicate with our transliterated vocabulary prompts created a lot of smiles and playful interaction with the vendors. In the end the group purchased what was necessary for us to prepare part of our lunch.
After our adventure in the local market we headed to a coperative and met with some of the folks to discuss through an interpreter the cooperative. Then we boarded a Jeep and went further into the countryside to begin a walk through a farm to taste all sorts of produce.
