263--Thailand: Big Snakes at the Floating Market
@ CherieSpotting     Dec 17 2004 - 03:10 PST
cherie writes: Many travelers don’t like Thailand’s “Floating Market”. Critics say it’s just too touristy. But I loved it, and enjoyed being paddled through the canals and imagining what the floating market might have been like hundreds of years ago. I’m sure it’s changed—but it is still a sight to see.

Diane, Hilda, Hannah, Leighton and I shared a boat and bought breakfast from local women and men who paddled by. The mini-coconut pancakes were unforgettable!

After our bellies were full, we decided to get our necks squeezed. We made friends with huge Burmese pythons. Hannah soon found herself wearing a snake necklace, while the twins opted for a more fashionable scarf. I got the most action I’ve seen in a while and got a big snake kiss—tongue and all!
