The Eel Man

We hit a few markets today while waiting for the night bus to Krabi. One market had meat and fish for sale for the street vendors.

 Let me introduce you to the eel man.

And here is a close up of the bucket of eels:

Bucket Full of Eels

Francie says you have to keep eels alive and fresh before getting them ready for din-din.  Eew.

  1. Holy fracking hell. It’s like a horror movie. A horror movie you can eat… I have to go lie down now.

  2. Eels are spectacular. It was only in recent years that it has been discovered that eels return to a clear water spot in the middle of the ocean at the end of their life to procreate. The feathery eggs float to various parts of the world. North Carolina and eel island by Cambridge are favorite places. Apparantely some survive for the return trip to that special place to give life and then die!

    Eels are not on my Curves diet plan!

  3. What’s the blue bucket full of? Eel remnants? Can I get those with corn tortillas?

    F and G — you all fraking brave! Roger
