One of my best friends returned from a lengthy trip to Thailand last 
weekend, and she brought me seeds!  I had specifically asked her to watch 
for chile seeds. Other friends who travel don't seem to be able to even 
find a grocery store, but Lindarose spent a lot of time in farmers' 
markets, talking to natives, etc.  She was not on a tour, and although her 
sister and BIL lived on Phuket, Thailand, she traveled alone.  If there was 
something miles away she wanted to see, she rented a bicycle and went.

Well, in addition to several packets of chile seeds with descriptions of 
the pods and how they're used, heat level, etc., she brought little cans of 
seeds.  They're about the size of our small tomato sauce cans.  And what a 
way to protect seeds from humidity and light!

She visited Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar in addition to Thailand during her 
three month visit.  Margaret L
