Rat Sushi

New Years celebration at Phra Tat Nadun in Maha Sarakham, about 45 mins. from home

This is one of the last photos I took on an outing before COVID lockdown. I checked, but they weren’t actually serving rodents of any kind, so we can chalk this one up to interesting Asian naming.

  1. Interesting to see that, even in Thailand, they use the same faux-Japanese-looking font that we use in the States to convey exotic Japanese-ness.

    Could “rat” be zodiac-related? One site says of rat-sign people: “… quick-witted, resourceful, and smart, but lack[ing] courage.”

    1. The font thing, yeah. Only for Japanese and Chinese signs and ads, though.

      About the naming, I have no idea. I have an interesting factoid though: “rat” means “rhinoceros” in Thai.
