Smoked Rats for consumption, Phongsali Market, Laos.

In 2004 I travelled extensively around South East Asia. These rats were among the more exotic treats at the thriving Phongsali Market, in the remote North of the Republic of Laos.

Rats, rats lay down flat
We don't need you, we act like that
and if you think you're un-loved
then we know about that...
Rats, rats, lay down flat!
yes, yes, yes, yes,
lay down flat
