This post is going to be less interesting than it could be, because I didn’t take many food photos when I was travelling. But here are a few odds and ends.
Fruitshakes are huge in Thailand (or at least they were back in the day). I’m not a big fruit fan, but their fruitshakes were amazing. This is near our guesthouse in Bangkok.
This is me getting my silly carnivore on while eating a skewer of street meat in Bangkok. My friend was sure I was going to get sick from it, but I didn’t. This photo is taken on Khao San Road, which is the tacky tourist drag, teeming with drunk westerners.
Chiang Mai is a delightful little city in northern Thailand with lots of things to do, including cooking courses. This was the result of my cooking. On the left was a chicken and potato yellow curry, in the middle was a cashew chicken dish, and on the right was a steamed fish in a banana leaf packet.
This was a street-frpnt omelette shop in Jodphur, which is in Rajasthan in northwestern India. I was careful to keep my distance to avoid tripping and knocking all of his eggs over (and yes, I am that much of a klutz).
This cute little table is at a Starbucks in Mumbai, India. I made daily visits to that Starbucks while I was in the city because the hibiscus iced tea was yummy and refreshing, but mostly because the air conditioning was fabulous.
This was at a fancy schmancy old-fashioned café in Rome near the Vatican. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but caffe latte seemed like the thing to do.
I wasn’t feeling enthused about much of anything when I was in Italy (thanks, depression), so for lunch I would often just pick up something from the grocery store. This is my liquid-heavy lunch with chocolate milk, iced tea, and an individual-sized tetra pak wine.
This is at Caffe Florian in Venice. It’s apparently the oldest continually operating cafe in the world. They had a classical music ensemble playing, and it was all very fancy. It was also rather expensive, but I guess it balanced out the savings on the tetra pak wine.
Clearly I’m not a foodie photographer. I’d rather eat than take pictures.
