Tasting Betel Nut

Location: Sompoi, Thailand

So many new experiences...eating betel nut with old ladies, riding motorcycles, and picking onions in the field.

On competition day, gorgeous, friendly Piggy and her daughter Pure.

Gearing up for work in the onion fields. The shirts are made of silk and hand dyed using natural materials from the trees. And this is a work shirt??

Eve, a fantastic English student at Sompoi, gives Chris a lift to the market.

The farmers taught us the proper stance for effective onion picking...not recommended by your local orthopedic surgeon.

The fields around Sompoi...rice in one season, onions and scallions in the other.

To put some faces to the names we've written about....going from left to right: Nam (our host mother,) Nong, Pure, Kat, Emily, Piggy, Susan, Jennifer, Tim, and Chris.

I know it seems like a really strange thing, a baby on a motorcyle, but I can tell you it happens everywhere here (and Emily sqeals with delight the whole ride.)

Chewing betel nut with Nong's family...Poot chai Thai (Thai man!)

Nam helps prepare the betel nut for John. Old women in the village like to chew the nut which turns their lips and teeth a dark red color.

Nam's grandmother, Yai. She's just so beautiful (inside and outside) we told her we must take her home with us!!
