I’ve Been in Thailand for 28 hrs and These are the Things I’ve Already Over Paid For

I’ve been in Thailand for 28 hrs and these are the things I’ve already over paid for:

  • Taxi ride from the airport: when the driver says “highway? No traffic! You pay tolls!” And then refuses to say anything else because “sorry, English bad” you know you’re stuck (but, not in traffic).
  • Spring Rolls: when you’re hungry and you agree to buy spring rolls at what you think is an exorbitant price, but what do you know – you just got out of an expensive taxi cab – and then about two blocks down the same tourist congested, alcohol induced road you find springs rolls for a third of the price.
  • Scorpions: when you negotiated because you just realized you over paid for spring rolls, but probably didn’t negotiate enough because the vendor agreed to the price with the same eagerness as a bunch of kids who just heard, “who wants ice cream?”
  • Dessert “tacos”: cause who wants to learn from yesterday’s lesson and not agree to pay the first price. 

I am SO out of practice. 

But, at least I learned one thing: fried scorpions are pretty tasty, they just taste like “crunch”
