Having just returned from the U.S., we are more jetlagged than not, which means that everyone keels over at seven in the evening and is wide awake at 5 a.m. if not sooner. It’s basically a disaster. So this morning we went to go look at the squid market which is just north of us, on Charoen Krung soi 60. This is a late night affair, and even by six it’s shutting down. But there are still plenty of squid on display:
There are a few crabs and some prawns for good measure, but this street is almost entirely squid and octopus. A teuthologist would be astounded, or perhaps horrified, by the variety of squid that you can get here. Some appears to be frozen; most of it is displayed on ice.
The prices seem reasonable but we did not buy any squid. Next time we are up this early!
