Shopping: Pork & Cock

A trip to the JJ weekend market can be interesting, if you can get past the oppressive heat, throngs of tourists and don’t mind massive repetition.

But you can stumble upon some gems, like someone selling various bits of pig, and a wooden cock.

I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore. I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region.

    I really hate going to JJ market, way to hot and I feel after you have walked the first 50 meters most of the stalls just repeat each other again and again and again.

    But now you tell me they sell wooden cocks, hmm perhaps I will go there again!
