2011, Day 264 - Grilled bananas

On my second full day in Chiang Mai I decided to go into the old city and just walk.  No set agenda, I just wanted to see what there was to see and as I wound through the streets I stopped at temples, paused to drink in the traffic, explored shops and stalls and had a couple snacks.  As the afternoon was waning and I was making my way to the walking street bazaar I came upon this old woman.  Her face reminded me of my grandmother who is sadly no longer with us.  It isn't as though there was a strong resemblance but when she looked up from her grill and smiled I saw that familiar warm look in her face.  She spoke no English and I speak no Thai but I gave her a big smile and paid too much for a skewer of bananas.
