tikky ri

It was the tuk tuk that carried me back. Not back to my hotel, but back to when I was here for the first time in 1989.
Open air transportion in the middle of Bangkok is not the most ideal, but it's certainly the most adventurous and the
cutest. Sticky rice, better know as 'tikky ri' with banana covered in a banana leaf, sealed with a toothpick grilling on an
open fire was my first taste off the street. It grounded me and with a lightening bolt of flavor, it snapped me into the present. I'm in Thailand! Nevermind that it takes around 24 hours of travel and you lose a day. Living in the land of smiles is easy..especially in The Sukhothai with lotus flowers as friends.
