Tonight some of us attended a Thai cooking class. I wasn't too excited when we were signing up for which day we wanted to go. A lot of Thai food is spicy and I don't like/can't tolerate spice to any degree, so I didn't think I'd enjoy learning how to cook food I didn't like to eat.
We were, however, assured that cooking the food is better than ordering it in a restaurant because you can control the amount of spice you add, so I thought I'd take advantage of the opportunity whether I enjoyed the food or not.
IT. WAS. SO. AWESOME!!
The school sent a cab, or what they call a song-tau (I don't think the second word is spelled correctly) to pick us up at the hotel.

We went directly to market to purchase some of the ingredients for the dishes we would be making. Our teacher did a great job explaining what everything was and after making the purchases, we had a few minutes to wander around the market on our own.
Below: our merry band.
Nel and Leah getting ready to chop some of the ingredients for their dish choices.
One of my choices was "spring rolls". So yummy.
It was such a great afternoon. I even brought home leftovers for dinner tomorrow night.
