Sticky Rice

Learned (at least) two interesting things at dinner last night. First, Laos eats more sticky rice (khao niao) than any place in the world. Second, you have to put the top back on the little rice basket after you finish eating or you run the risk of someone stealing your wife or girlfriend. You never know what will happen if you don't put the top back on. The dish in the background is fish laap, i.e. grilled fish with chili, mint leaves, lime juice and fresh herbs. [NOTE: The beautiful little rice baskets are woven out of finely split bamboo. I clearly remember closing the one I was using after finishing the rice.]
