Quirkiest Rest Stop Ever

If I hadn't been there myself, I might not believe it was a real place. But real it is: Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant. A quick stop for a drink and a snack took our group to this outpost of family planning; one in a chain of Thai restaurants where "Our food is guaranteed not to cause pregnancy." It's actually a place with a great story and mission. According to its website, "Our restaurant was conceptualized in part to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning and to generate income to support various development activities of the Population and Community Development Association." In a nutshell, it is making condoms not only as accessible as cabbages, but hip and cool as well. I bought the cookbook, of course!
