Catfish Feeding Frenzy

We rented motorbikes and drove to a Wat north of Chiang Mai.  I will post some pictures and blog about it later.  They have this large pond/small lake with a small bridge out to an island in the center. 

There are turtles and other cool things that live there.  These Thai girls started a catfish feeding frenzy by throwing popcorn and fish pellets into the water (see a crazy video).  These were all about 1 to 1.5 feet long but we saw one or two that were definitely over three feet long.  They were huge-Francie said she saw it at first and thought ‘how did a shark in here’.  Its whiskers were six inches long.  At one point it even blew us a kiss.

I like popcorn…but don’t tell the fishermen that
