Funny what you can find

Yesterday was a good evening out in one of my favourite parts of Dubai, Satwa. I'll post more about it tomorrow.

In one of the many fascinating shops, buying some frankincense if you really want to know, I found something that I thought was just a myth.

Snake oil...

I had snake wine in Vietnam. It did have a full small snake in the bottle. Tasted like a strong spirit rather than wine but the locals believe it makes males stronger.....

So Dave; did you get stronger

Jeyla, I was ten-foot tall and bulletproof for several hours... A feeling that did not last....

i think its the snake venom that gives the extra kick..not enough to do any real damage, but enough to get you high up in the sky.
