SOME STRANGE THINGS PEOPLE SOLD (TO BE EATEN) AT THE MORNING MARKET

People from different ethnic groups definitely have unique food they consume which we may consider strange. This is just to show some examples of some strange things that we saw being sold at the morning market in Luang Prabang. One man's meat is another man's poison - we might consider the food items something bizarre but for the locals, that could be something delicious and nutritious. 

some kinds of worms, but even in a few parts in Malaysia,
these are eaten


fresh frogs


definitely not pets as I found the skinned ones


crunchy beetles


baby crabs


preserved/salted/marinated crabs



dried rats


more dried rats

inside the woven baskets were birds but not food,
they should be released at the temple
