  Snake charmers
by grets

Right outside our hotel, leaning up against our bus, were a couple of snake charmers. You were invited to make a donation in return for watching the musician encouraging the snake to appear from the basket by playing him a flute. Quite how it works I don't know, but it does.

You could also - for another donation of course - have your photograph taken with a large snake wrapped around your neck.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
