Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. I’m having an ok day. School starts tomorrow, so I’m not very happy. But let’s talk about food. This past weekend as I told you I went to the Lao New Year Celebration and it was nice.
I met monks, got blessed, ate plantains, beef jerky and beef on a stick, heard music, visited the temple, and had a lot of fun.
The temple was beautiful. The monk we met explained so much about their habits, why they throw water on the statues, why they play the drum, or why they don’t eat after 12PM. Such an interesting culture.
The beef jerky had a different taste, I didn’t like it but my sister liked it, although she didn’t like the snow ball. The snow balls had different tastes and different things on it. The beef stick had a bit of fat on it but the seasoning was good.
They had chicken feet and other foods to taste, but I got full and didn’t try it. But overall, because it gave me an idea of the Laotian culture, I give the Lao New Year Festival 3.5 Starts. That’s that ladies and gentlemen. Have a great day and don’t forget to go out and try new food and new places.
