Singing Pigs, Street Food, and Cats

Decided to be a bit lazier today and explore the area around my apartment.  Figured it would be fun to make a quick blog post and put some of the pictures up on here.  Enjoy!  

An awesome cat was just chilling by one of the street vendors today.  I love how there are so many cats just cruising around the stalls.  They each seem to have a turf and just laze around taking handouts.  Talk about living the life!


I love the massive amount of fresh fruit that you can buy for a very very reasonable price.  Just took a few random pictures of the street stalls about a minute walk from the apartment.


Lunch today consisted of watermelon and some papaya.  This and the Coca-Cola cost me about $1.40.  Granted, the fruit was a bit too much, and I did not finish the coke, but hey, why not just go for broke sometimes, right?


Found this pigeon hiding on my balcony behind my clothes rack.  He is terrifying.  If you are able to, zoom in on him, he looks something like scar-face.  If he comes back, I am going to give him that part of the balcony.  I ran from him and have not been back out on the balcony since this afternoon.  He was that terrifying.  


I have absolutely no clue what this is all about.  Just going to let the picture speak for itself.


Dinner - Awesome chicken stirred in with some very spicy sauce, a coke, and some orange juice.  


A bit of the street near my house with all the vendors.  I would have to guess that the vending area is about a quarter mile long and has two rows.  The air is very rich with the smell of cooking, and during the lunch time area, the heat coming off the stoves and burners is almost oppressive.  The food is amazing though. 



Finished the night off with some delicious ice cream.  I had some blueberry and strawberry.  I think I will have to work up to trying the wasabi and shrimp eggs.  I will be sure to update this when I find out how that tastes...
