I found this cool video from National Geographic about Thai people in the Northeast region who love to dine on bat. This is the region of the world where we will moving next year. Of course, these dining habits are more common to the rural villages where good protein sources are scarcer. Check this video out. It’s very interesting, especially the part when they “pray to the bats in an unknown language” before they catch them.
My friend Isaac who is a missionary in Thailand has told a recent story of feasting on mixture consisting of small tree frogs and sticky rice in a rural Thai village. I also hear that ant larvae are a delicacy there in the Northeast. I guess we might find out first hand…soon enough!
On the next “Eating Around the World” post, we will dive into Eating Insects. Some Thai’s love them too!
