Crazy insect man

Thu 27th October 2011

The local man turned out to have lots of insects for us to hold (er no way) and take photos of. Next up, two Scorpions.

Snakes…okay. I draw a line at scorpions!

Snake head

Okay so now it was my turn as the man placed the snake on my head for a photo. As you can see I look pretty worried!

Matt says...

I wish I had a video of this. I was desperately trying to take a photo of the snake on Claire’s head with it’s tongue out; meanwhile Claire Is getting more and more agitated and angry at me for not being quick enough! I think she liked it really…

Who goes around randomly placing snakes on people’s heads anyway?!?

 

Eek a snake!

We were approached by a local man with a snake and he proceeded to drape it all over Matt while I took photos.

Matt says...

You know when you have one of those self realisation moments in life; well here’s one captured on film. I just realised I’m holding a snake and I have no idea why!

 
Claire

Claire says...

Matt really doesn’t look too comfortable holding Mr snake!

 

Pretty bird

Thu 27th October 2011

At the summit of Penang Hill was a small aviary, where we met this inquisitive fellow. He certainly took a shine to Matt, asking to be petted again and again.

Matt says...

This Cockatoo looked so lonely in his cage. As soon as I walked over he promptly moved closer to me so I could rub the back of his neck. I want to keep him!

Penang Hill

Thu 27th October 2011

Today we took the train up Penang Hill which is 800 metres above sea level and boasts stunning panoramic views of Georgetown.

Matt says...

After yesterday’s trekking I was happy to get a train up to the top of the hill. It was a good 10 degrees cooler on top, only 23 degrees then!
