Where will life take you??? I am in Thailand...

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."

Tavarua - Thailand June 2013

Burmese Python

Black Scorpion

A few minutes prior to this photo - two black scorpions stung one of the hands of the man below...Not a word was spoken...No face expression...Silence...

Scorpion stings are painful, equal to a large hornet. The symptoms from these black forest scorpions should abate within a few hours.

The physical "battle scars" after a life long experience among  king cobras and other reptiles - this man stated that he had been bitten by snakes 287 times  - the picture tells it all. Both arms, legs and head had definitely enough scares.

  1. A fascinating glimpse into a life so removed from my own. This unusual man has opened my eyes to the bizarre. Thanks for the insight into your travels.
