I am not a fisherman and fish generally do not interest me at all unless they have been filleted, pan friend and placed in front of me on a plate so it takes something special for me to blog about a fish.
We are currently in Ubon Ratchathani slowly ploughing through a massive to do list and so early this morning we walked down to market number two in search of some breakfast.
Right at the small side entrance there was quite a crowd admiring this massive fish. It was a Giant Mekong Catfish (ปลาบึก).
Half of it had already been sold so it was hard to tell how big it was but my guess is around 2.5 metres. It certainly impressed most of the market including me!
Everyone got haircuts yesterday so I got the girls to pose in one of the photos so they could show off their new hair cuts to everyone.
