On our way to the floating market outside Bangkok, we stopped by a local family that made coconut syrup. Their house was connected to their work area so we got a tour of a traditional Thai house. The house is spartan but with all the amenities of an American home. The only difference was this house had a 65 pound python that you could wear for a few Bahts. I had to face my fears and put on the snake. It was very disconcerting. As Janine took her sweet time taking my picture, I visited the place called “High Anxiety.” Even though the snake was harmless to adults, it’s constant movement around my neck and body was intriguing.
This is the youngest boy playing with the monster. Notice the small dogs in the background. I was told that the snake and the dogs were friends. Oh by the way, they keep the snake fed each week with a chicken. I guess that’s what brings on the friendship.
