There was one thing that I was really interested in prior to arriving, and that was the fresh coconut...as you can see, I was successful! It was delicious!
In addition to this coconut I also succeeded at devouring some amazing street food. I passed up the banana lumpia (which I assure you is the best thing EVER to eat) because of the junk that I had previously consumed (including a chocolate covered wild banana on a stick. Yum!
Throughout the evening there were some interesting things/encounters. A man with his pet monitor lizard (3 feet long) who had the thing crawling all over him. A water buffalo with a saddle on it, they were selling "rides". I passed on the ride but did pet the water buffalo.
It poured for most of the evening, which in the grand scheme of things was actually a refreshing break from the oppressive heat/humidity.
All in all a grand evening enjoying some local cuisine/entertainment!
