Roti and Other Delicacies

We began our day with an early-morning visit to the Mae Hong Son market. The vendors were in place when we arrived, and many shoppers had already come and gone. (We were told the market begins between 5:00 and 5:30 a.m.) It is winter here, and the overnight temperatures were low single digits Centigrate, or about 42 degrees.  Everyone was wrapped up and complaining about the cold, dogs included.

We found everything from flowers to fresh produce food.

John was especially impressed with these bags of hot peppers.

He and Duke sampled some of the local spices, and we bought some to take home.
With Duke's help, we visited with some of the locals, and sampled some of the dishes they were cooking. We were very fond of something called "roti," a pancake hot off the griddle smeared with condensed milk. I can guarantee you would be asking for seconds if you had one.
