Rambutan Fruit Thailand

Tasty Rambutan Fruit

Nakhon Chai Si, Thailand

After my traditional Thai tattoo session I was craving some fresh fruit. Lucky for me there was a large open-air market next to the temple. It was here I met Waan and her giant mountain of rambutan fruits! For just $1 she loaded me up with enough to share with everyone on my taxi-van ride back to Bangkok. Yum.

    Now this is a photo. Who knows what Rambutan fruits are, but the lady is happy, the fruit is colorful as the seller. Even her green arms match the fruit. I’m a strawberry guy myself.
