I hired a guide, Chai, today and left the hotel at 6am. We started at his bakery, and then went to three markets. I asked for a guide who could take me to places away from the tourist haunts and he obliged. I didn't see any other foreigner at the larger wholesale market, and only a handful at the others. He spoiled me with freshly baked croissants and pastries. He even gave me enough to share with the five others back at the hotel. Unfortunately for them, they weren't here when I got back, and .... Let's just say I'm feeling quite full.
