Thai High School Food Porn

So I’ve been a bit busy over the past week; going through the motions for an online teaching job (which now I’m losing interest in due to the fact it is taking so long and my poor wifi connection out here in Isan), making lesson plans and test papers for next week, and I also squeezed in a trip to Laos for a visa run (more on that later!

Instead of writing a long post on the delicacies of Thailand I thought I’d leave you some food porn to drool over while you contemplate your next backpacking or teaching move. Bon appétit!

Above is the typical scene in the teacher’s office; the Thai teachers bring in an assortment of food and we all sit down and share it.  They especially like it when I try something very spicy and need to run to get water!

Ok, so this may not be the healthiest food but damn, you come teach at a Thai high school and say no to trying some of these and many more delicious delights for only 20 baht a meal (60 cents)!

What’s the school food like at your school? Great? terrible? Somewhere in between? The food at my first Korean school was awful haha.
