i saw a lot of things like that happening in china, it makes you wonder wtf people are getting brought up to believe when average joe thinks these traditional medicines will work or thats its ok to kill endangered species for the sake of an aphrodisiac that costs a lot more than viagra and doesnt even work.

i know the british went to africa and killed everything that moved not so long ago, i've seen the videos of the royal family hunting and the pile of dead tigers they so proudly stood in front of, ignorance causes some horrible things to happen, but in 2007 you'd hope that this type of stupidity would be over and done with. then again much of the world still lives in the age of ignorance.

doped or not, i wasnt about to **** with him......

the monks and abouts say that they are fed just prior, and the heat, it was blazing hot, makes them sleepy, so no need for drugs, coupled with them having been around humans most of their lives, makes for quite docile killers.....

shouldn't that be KITamine :p

Groan! :rolleyes: :p

Welcome back home Jai buddy. Thought you were going to tell porkies and claim that you wrestled that tiger to the ground with your bare hands and now it was going to be your slave forever ;)

Trip sounded like fun! I guess the Ace cafe next week will seem somewhat dull in comparison!

whilst in cambodia, had the chance to visit the floating villages of tonle sap, a giant inland body of water, where among other things, the folk have crocodile farms, leather belts never looked so dangerous, so of course i bought a live catfish, tied it to a stick, and went fishing in the holding pen

the entrail spray when that fish got ripped in two, was quite a sight, as the french lady who got a faceful will agree.....

but the real reason for going to cambodia was of course the ancient ruins of angkor wat, a civilisation that was long abandoned and forgotton, and hence nature took back what was hers...

with nothing more than time on their side, an army of strangler figs are well on their way to totally tearing apart some of the complexes...awesome stuff

and of course if you are going to visit saigon, you simply have to try the vietcong tunnels out, where for a small fee, your guide, who was also ex-vc.....will arrange a go on the weapon of choice for all freedom fighter, terrorists around the world
