Leaving the stove where the fish was being grilled, I continued my walk through the Tha Tien market. Most markets for locals are messy and easy to get lost in, but this one was not so big. I never got lost. When I was walking, I was out of the market before I got lost. As someone who enjoys getting lost on my travels, this market was not worth exploring.
In the meantime, I came to a place where stalls were set up in the aisles. A woman was working. She was boiling noodles. She was working with a towel around her neck like a manual laborer. As I approached, the woman suddenly shouted “udon." She must have thought I was Japanese and told me in Japanese what kind of noodles she was boiling. But what she was boiling was not udon. This is Bangkok, Thailand. What the woman was probably boiling was bami, a common type of noodle in Thailand made of wheat, just like udon.
