That is NOT a philly cheese steak!!

This is then entrance to snake alley. My camera started acting up, so we didn't get a lot of shots. But there were snakes gutted and hanging for purchase and small little restaurants I guess where you could have a meal of snake.
I tried to get a shot of some of the creatures you could eat. I thought I would venture to eat some local foods, but it just didn't seem sanitary here.
The night market seemed like a flea market really. Nothing too special to us. Beware of old cabs. Our cab driver back to the hotel drove insanely. He didn't believe in driving lanes, or rules, or driving in a straight line. Jon doesn't get unnerved easily. This guy made us nervous....we ventured to the local pub to relax
Where we had some local beer and what appeared at first site to be philly cheese steaks and burgers. The meat here has a distinct taste, that is NOT American.
We really miss our puppies!!
