Here are a few items we've really enjoyed while pedaling through Laos.  
Sugar Cane Stuffed
with Sticky Rice & Black Beans
There are almost always a few
women at the open markets selling
these wonderful tubes of delicious
carbohydrate and protein.  

They are about 16 inches long with a
diameter of about 3 inches.  They
cost less than a dollar are packed full
of enough rice for two hungry people
and can be used to bat away any
stray dogs that decide to chase you
on the road.

The rice is steamed inside the sugar
cane and has a slightly sweet taste.  
You simply peel back outer cane to
reveal a clingy, gummy rice within.  
Maize (Corn) Tamales
These thumb-sized corn husks
are wrapped around a slightly
sweet mash of corn and sold in
bags of five for about US 20
cents.  They are great snacks
while on the road and their
packaging is perfectly
ecological.  

They are very similar to tiny
Mexican tamales.
