Phnom Phen Insect Market...this guy was waving this bag over his prized cooked up bugs so that flies wouldn't land on them.

Very nice!! I'm not sure what's more alarming: the fact that they cook and eat the gigantic hairy spiders, or the fact that there are so many to begin with...

And while we're on the topic of gross stuff people eat, here's one I took in Kathmandu. I realize that goat isn't really disgusting, but the presentation here leaves something to be desired...

Makes my mouth water...
As for the goat photo..reminds me of the BBQ in Mongolia we were invited to.
The goat meat was really fresh...it walked in behind us!
They have this way of killing the goat by slitting the chest, inserting the hand to squeeze the heart.
I'll seek out my photos of that.

We snapped these kids out collecting the family's dinner.Snakes!
Sorry about the clarity.We were shooting at 7 megs but I have had to resize the photo a few times to get the file size within the accepted limits and it hasn't come out well..
