  2. Typical morning on the streets of Bangkok.
    This is where I get my eggs as well as lunch in a bag, that we just heat
    in the microwave and serve with brown rice. This is one of my favorite vendors to buy from. Fabulous cook................Easy for me they are right next to each other.
    You can see satay grilling over charcoal to be eaten with different sauces.

    Hi, and thanks for the pics! I looked at your profile and I see you own a conversational english school, are you from Thailand originally? Do any U.S. nurses work in Thai hospitals as travel nurses?
    I am a new grad, not yet ready to travel now, but someday I will be. Thank-you for sharing

    I am an American nurse. There are no American nurses actually working in Thai hospitals at the bedside. You would have to take the Thai nursing exam and it is in Thai. So there are no travellers over here either. The only time I hear of any foreigners in the hospitals is when they come over to do rotations, such as nursing students or doctors doing some of their fellowship training. Example, heart surgeons wanting to specialize in pediatric valves.
    Do to the number of genetic heart problems in kids here, they do a large number of valves.

    80s-90s year round for the most part.

    Streets are actually cleaner here than in the US. Sidewalks and sidestreets are actually swept on a daily basis over here, by humans, not by machines.
    People tae pride in the way there home looks, even the street and curb in front gets cleaned daily.

    We have a Sky-train system that I prefer, the subway is actually opening next month ahead of schedule, cars, buses, trains, and taxis.
    Tuk-tuks and motorcycle taxis are also available.

    I keep getting PMs with questions about the food over here.
    And right now since I am just going between office and the house, this is primarily what I see.

    Haven't gotten a noodle soup picture yet...........

    The first picture on the left is probably the satay. It's a type of grilled meat shiskabob style on a stick, with a peanutty sauce. In restaurants here it's usually almost always chicken. But I've bought the sauce before and grilled tofu and actually served it a a dinner party. People loved it.

    It is strips of meat on a stick that you cook over a charcoal grill. Usually chicken, beef, or pork. Depending on the time of the day that it is served, the sauces will vary. At lunch or dinner it is usually served with a spicy peanut sauce for dipping. In the morning it is eaten with a sauce that is sweeter but still has a kick.

    Tweety,
    Did they serve everything in a bag when you were living here? Drinks with ice and poured into a bag that is closed with a rubber band? Noodle soup for take-away is the same. Meat, noodles, greens, and spices go into one bag and the hot soup is placed in another. Then you just put it together when you get home, keeps the greens and bean sprouts as they should be, instead of too wilted.
