One of the other foreigners here at Kittana told me about a fish garden about 1km up the canal. Yesterday afternoon I decided to walk up and check it out. I don't know if garden is the appropriate word, it is basically just a feeding ground for fat ass spoiled catfish. It's on the grounds of a temple, and I think they use the sale of bread for feeding the fish as a way to raise money.
While walking back along the street to the gym I heard a little boy say 'pad thai,' so of course I had to stop and order a plate of $1 pad thai for myself. I've also been eying up these pastries that one of the street vendors by the gym sells so I decided to get one. 10 baht for a warm delicious pastry filled with some banana custard. For dinner at the gym we ordered delivery bbq. The driver shows up on a scooter and brings you two mini grills, charcoal, meat, broth, veggies and sauces. The grill top has a channel around the outside to heat the broth and veggies while the meat gets cooked in the middle. I failed to get a picture, but here is one.

Here's what you've all been waiting for. It seems all I've been writing about is food lately, and to prove I'm not just eating myself fat, I decided to get some training footage. So, here I am after a week and a half at Kittana.
Finally, my laptop took the shit yesterday and so my blogging career may be cut short on this trip. Maybe I'll find a solution, but if not, updates will be rare here.
