ABSTRACT
The article recounts the author's return trip to Thailand, after spending six years there in the 1960s. His visits to the villages were very memorable. He ate a dish called laab lyat, a raw meat with coriander, mint, peppers and fermented fish and served bathed in its own blood. On the roads of Thailand, he observed that ten-wheeler trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, water, buffalo, children walking to school, oxcart and tractors share the road. He also observed that the population of water buffalos in villages were declining.
