I held a python on my neck

That was part of our Mekong river trip. At a lunch break, they brought out this huge python for people to hold for a few seconds. You have to understand: I hate snakes. Small, big, green, brown, whatever… I’m happier away from them. However, when would I ever get a chance to (hopefully) safely hold a python who’s not hungry and see what it’s like? Now was the time. And Oh. My. Goodness. That thing was creeeeeeepy. I could feel the muscles move beneath the skin. Yuk. Looking at the video, I only held it for maybe 15 seconds, desperately trying to keep some semblance of a smile, before my knees were about to give out. I was shaking. Hard. But I did it :)
