Snack #1: Papaya Shake.

The first "snack a day" fell on a Monday. Monday is always my least favorite day to find food in Thailand. People often take the day off. I don't know why. Maybe it has something to do with the King's birthday, or maybe it's just an accepted day of rest. This day was special not only for being the first day of the new year, but the day after a series of bombs exploded throughout bangkok killing three, injuring dozens, and cancelling all planned New Years celebrations. Finding a snack in Thailand is always easy; incredibly easy. Today it was less than incredibly easy, but when it was snack time, there were maybe a dozen or so to choose from at the market I chose to do my snacking. I opted for the Papaya shake. At fifteen Baht a pop, I cannot complain.

perhaps it was not your intention, but you come off as an author with a serious dearth of empathy.

For whom? The vendor or my dear reader?
