they hate vanilla

Something to know about Thailand is that they are not fond of vanilla. At least, not in milkshakes and things. You can still get vanilla ice cream, I think. But shakes have to be banana shakes or something. But I did have a nice carmel frappacino ice thing which is like a carmel milkshake. Yum.

We're in Chiang Mai now, and nestled into our nice little hotel room. We're about to go out and have a thai lunch. Of course I will report back on all the tasty food we eat. We're about a block and a half from the night market, too, so the plan is to eat mango sticky rice we buy from the street vendors every day. I can give up vanilla for a few weeks if I get mango sticky rice every day, no problem.
