Travel Photo Thursday, February 24, 2011 — Chili Madness

Posted by on Feb 24, 2011 in Thailand - Chiang Mai, Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 18 comments

Thursday has arrived, and it’s time for TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY. This week I’m posting from Daejeon, where I’m getting ready to start a new semester of teaching. The sun is shining, the skies are blue, and it’s much cooler than in SEA.

To join in the fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. Please remember to leave a comment after you link. Finally, if you have a few moments, visit the others who have linked. Perhaps you can give them a tweet, a stumble, or a comment on their TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY.

The Thai’s love their chili’s! When you have a salad made on the street the question always is “How many?” not “Do you want?” I’m up to three in my som tam salad. That’s plenty hot, even though I’m sure that’s considered “wimp level” by the salad maker. This shot was taken during my photo walk in Chiang Mai’s Myung Mai Market.

  1. Those are really colorful, hot stuff!!! Thailand is known for really hot and spicy delicacies… I’m surprised that you can even dare to put three to your som tam salad! I cannot take super spicy hot cuisines so kudos to you for trying! Lovely photos Nancie! 🙂 Thank you for sharing…

  2. Nancie,
    Cool shot of some hot peppers. I used to believe habaneros were the hottest peppers on earth. Then, I ran aross my first Thai pepper. Chiuaua, that sucker was hot !

  3. Nice shot. Very colorful!

  4. Love how vibrant chilis look.

  5. What an awesome pic. Reminds me of a dish our Chinese friends cooked for us. Roughly translated ‘Chicken of 100 chillies’ – chicken is cooked in a sauce covered with exactly 100 chillies and then eaten. It took them (friends and husband not me – I am not mad!) 3 hours to get through the meal. All the while crying and sweating. They loved every mouthful!

    • Kerry, I ate a dish similar to that when I was in China. My mouth was burning for a week!

  6. Love those chili peppers.

  7. Yeah love hot chillies, but have to lay off them these days when I’m cooking…makes my wife get itchy skin.
    Got an interesting photo up for my Travel Thursday…sorry but taken on my old digital camera when 2 MPs was top of the range.

  8. Very pretty photo! I like the bold colors and the “Thailand” poking through 🙂

  9. I like the photo, the colors are so intense 🙂

  10. Is their a correlation between the size of a pepper and it’s heat? My mouth is burning looking at the photo.

  11. You have such a knack with vibrant colors, Nancie. I’m not a big chilis person, but I’d like to reach right in and eat one of these.

  12. We always love the pepper shots because the colors the provide. Nice job, especially with the Thailand print underneath.

  13. Love the colors and this shot makes me miss Thailand so much!

  14. Beautiful tones, photos taken in local markets are always very evocative of the place, anywhere I go, I never miss visiting them.

  15. Really a great click……….
    Like this capture !!!!!
