The title of this blog, "The Eunice Burns," is inspired by an excellent movie called, "What's Up, Doc?" If you haven't seen it, you should. There is a character who at one point clarifies that she is not, "a Eunice Burns, I am THE Eunice Burns." We are individuals. We are unique.

Laos Organic Market
About a year ago, a friend of mine asked for pictures of our "Farmer's Market." This is the closest thing I know of in Vientiane. Another friend of mine here goes to the organic market every Wednesday, so I tagged along to take some pictures.
Your basic machete stand...
Some beautiful woodwork
I'm guess she had an early morning...
I don't know what all of these plants are, but the ones in the back right are papaya trees.
This is eggplant. We eat them a lot in green curry.
And no Laos market would be complete without woven bamboo.
Some dried fish. And I bought some of that dried mango. It was really yummy. Like a natural fruit roll-up.
This is NOT what regular markets look like here. Perhaps I'll take my camera to the local market some day and take pictures so we can compare.
