A Quick Game

These past two weeks have been quite eventful - we stayed with a family in a village far, far away from the big city. That always equals fun. So instead of making you sit through one very long post, we're gonna break this thing up into small, ADD sized pieces.

We were invited to a wedding this past weekend. Here's a picture from the pre-wedding set-up:

This is a pretty standard looking pot, right? Cooking up some pretty standard Asian food (chicken curry).

Guess how big it is.

A gallon maybe?

Oops, sorry, this is Asia. I mean 4 litres?

5 litres?

Big enough to fit an entire chicken in?

Take another look, this time with a full sized person next to it:

Yes, I promise that's an adult. I have no clue how many chickens are in that thing, but the chicken population of this village has definitely taken a hit.

holy crap! that's a whole lot of goo. gotta say...I'm never getting one of those so I'll always have the excuse of "but I don't have a pot big enough."

So I like that these people are economical...the "spoon" also doubles as an oar for a kayak, canoe, or whatever...good stuff!
AND instead of smelling like river, you conveniently smell chicken curry ALL WEEK! (Ok, so I know their customs would not really allow this, but just think of the possibilities!)

fun stuff! i tell you, the weddings there are really different then here. Here, the women just party for three hours in skimpy clothes (no men around), the bride comes in, they take pictures of here, the women cover themselves, then the groom comes in to take the bride away. By that time, your ears are ringing! Cultural weddings... Gotta love 'em!

That is perhaps the largest pot I have ever seen! I have just one question, did Little Rivers mind the smells that such an enormous creation must have given off?!
