Today I received my third postcard from Germany this month.  It took almost a month to reach Phuket from Düsseldorf, the capital of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.  I’m not yet certain whether to blame that on the holidays or on the dismal performance of Thailand’s postal service.  This arrived in an envelope and sender Nicole even included a couple of recent German stamps on-piece.  I got a kick out of the potatoes on this card as I really miss potatoes in this rice-dominated culture.  While I can get proper potato-based meals in the more touristy areas, I really love the few Thai dishes that do add them as an ingredient.  My favorite Thai dish, masman curry, is supposed to include potatoes and I’m disappointed when they aren’t there.
