Shortly after nightfall we arrived in the small village of Mae Chaem. Mae Chaem doesn't see many westerners as it isn't mentioned in any of the main guide books. We stopped by this restaurant where they only served one item, table bbq. Shortly after this woman set up the bbq some young kids came to our table and taught us how to cook the food. We had bbq'd pork, liver, fish, and vegetables. The outside rim of the bbq is made to hold broth for cooking the vegetables. The locals were very happy to see us and they offered us some beer and asked about where we were from. One man asked for my email address as he said he would like to practice his English. He said he wants to e-mail me everyday... I just laughed.
