More on the Esai Drum Festival

Fair Food  (Octopus Balls on the right!)
Going out on a Sunday  night makes for a very slow and tired Monday!  Today has literally dragged by.  Several co-workers told me today that they were also at the drum festival last night, but the crowd was so large that we never encountered each other.

The food vendors were interesting to watch.  They worked over long hot tables, cooking and then keeping food warm until it sold.  Some of it looked delicious, but I have learned not to eat late in the evening, particularly things with which I am unfamiliar.  Hot packaged noodles seem to be a big draw, as well as oriental delicacies like fish, squid, and octopus.  Lots of people were walking around with bits of meat on sticks that looked good.  There was also an abundance of corn-on-the-cob.  (I love hot corn-on-the-cob, but, alas, it does not love me!)

Attached are more pictures from last night's festival.
