Luang Prabang: a market with strange plants to eat

Visiting the market in Luang Prabang I could not even pretend to know what half the plants were, or what they were used for which is fairly unusual! A lot of the usual suspects were missing, as locally they are very good at using herbs (and animals) direct from the forest. So I'm not going to even pretend to know what I am talking about and let the pictures do the talking.

The whole market was just spread down one alley near the old royal palace

Pumpkins, banana flowers and chilli's 

random stuff, including some coiled twigs?!

 ? some type of palm flower?

Another type of palm flower?
This was a surprise...these are all bee larvae
Anyone for a frog curry?
