This woman is making mataba, savory filled “pancakes”:

Maharat Road, running paralell to the river, is a virtual open air market, and this guy is selling the most common item, Buddha amulets:

Great photography. I love mataba.

Thanks! Yes, mataba are good, especially this shop’s version (I was going to include an entry on them here but this was the only pic that really turned out nice–got to keep up the standards, you know).


Very nice! I found a place where you can
make some nice extra cash secret shopping. Just go to the site below
and put in your zip to see what’s available in your area.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
