In most markets here in Chiang Mai you can find fried bugs to eat. We always see them and always say that we're going to try them sometime, but haven't yet. I really craved crickets when I was pregnant with Aashini, but never ate them when I was craving them.... so, when we were at a waterfall the other day and saw some fried bugs, we decided it was time :)
Adam went first and got the biggest grossest bug there (in my opinion) :)
He had a hard time biting though the wings - gross!! He said it was OK....
Next I tried my cricket. It actually tasted OK. It wasn't bad, but the cricket leg stuck in my throat wasn't that great... :)
Aashini tried one too :)
She liked it :) She thought it was funny to eat bugs :) On the way home, she got hungry and found the bag of bugs and just started munching on them - it was hilarious - she loved the grubs the best - haha! Yesterday she was hungry and asked for some bugs to eat!! What a funny third-culture kid we have :)
