Snakes a Problem?
A friend whose brother lives in Thailand promised to contact him for advice on where, besides the obvious, well-known places, I should visit on an upcoming trip.
Yesterday he came back with info on his favorite place, which he has visited repeatedly: Kao Yai National Park, and most particularly, a lodging called Jungle House. The property has elephants and monkeys roaming about and guides who will take you into a thick jungle. When he was there last week sitting on the terrace kicking back with a friend, a snake fell out of a tree.
Then he sends along a blog another visitor had written about the exciting jungle adventure and how he almost stepped on a snake that turned out to be a cobra, according to the guide.
My friend's brother also included in an e-mail lovely pictures of his last visit there with his young daughters enjoying wonderful food, surrounded by flowers, and one of a huge scorpion--that one without the girls in the foreground, I'm glad to say.
New ideas, please.
Of course it's not that I wouldn't like to stay in close proximity to snakes and scorpions, and the night-time trip to the bat cave sounds intriguing, it's just I'm not sure it would appeal to readers. But perhaps I'm wrong about that. My friend accuses me of being a wimp.
