Somebody’s Grandmother — Thailand

Riding around the other day after work on a beautiful afternoon, not particularly looking for photos, but I brought my camera anyway.  I’ve seen this woman sitting before; near our house there is a small mountain, you can drive over the mountain, which is kind of a shortcut to another side of town, when you get to the other side there is a small row of little shacks [houses].  There is a young woman cooking, a man repairing motorbikes, and this woman sitting and chatting, and a lot of street dogs.  The last time I saw this woman I didn’t have my camera with me [noob].  I stopped the motorbike and chatted for a minute in Thai (until the short list of things I can say/respond to is spent) and asked her if I could take her picture, Thai people almost always say yes…  She straightened up a bit, and stared right at me.  It was cool, and I’m fairly happy with the way the photo turned out, I’ll go back.

Sweet Delicious Mexican

Upon moving to Hua Hin we’ve made a lot of friends here (which is cool, something that didn’t happen to a great extent in Chachoengsao). Two of those friends happen to be two Texican cousins [Hugo and Ed] that own a brand new little Mexican joint here in town.  (This might be a little dramatic, but I’m going to go ahead and say it’s the best Mexican food outside North America).  The restaurant is called Margaritas, appropriate seeing how they also have delicious margaritas.  The Thai food in Hua Hin is delicious and still the best way to go for cheap eats, but if you’re craving something different it’s nice to be able to get good food of a different variety.  And being one of my favorite types, Mexican was something I was seriously missing since leaving the states.

So these photos are all for the guys’ new menu, they asked me to shoot some for them.  Drinks and food.  Hope they make your mouth water.
