A tiny flaw in the plan...

Ahhh, so there was something of a weakness in my plan, wasn’t there? On Sunday, did I not say something along the lines of: “there were some good things in 2013 and I shall come and tell you about them”? No, no, it’s not exactly that I’ve forgotten what they were, I do have photographic evidence to remind me what I did last year. I’ve, errrm, just forgotten the precise details. It transpires that I can only come here and tell you, er, vaguely what happened at the beginning of last year.
 
At the end of February last year I joined an excursion to a mozzarella making Buffalo farm outside of Bangkok. I have no idea now where it was but it didn't take long to get there. I expect if you wanted to know and Google couldn't tell you, I could find out. It was fascinating. I think. I learned lots about making mozzarella. I took lots of pictures. And I DO remember thinking you’d be as fascinated by the process as I was… Only beyond hot and cold water to shape the mozzarella into those rotund yummy balls, I’m all of a blank. 

Still, I don't suppose there are many people who come to Tea Stains to learn anything...So, sorry and all that; apart from one picture that illustrates I DID actually see mozzarella being made, instead of any details whatsoever about the process, here are some pictures of the lovely, milk yielding buffalo:

LOOK! This is something to do with making mozzarella.

This is my best side.

Well, we ARE water buffalo...

Check out those eyelashes. 

What? It's mud; mud's good for the skin.

Hmmm, I'm a tiny bit freaked out by their cloven hooves.

Gorgeous girls

And my favourite picture of all....
