... again cramped with so many tourists, all returning to their tour buses and wait as they pull up one at a time. We head back to the hotel for an afternoon to recover from jet lag.

I saw some scorpions on sticks and then the store owner proceeded to pick one up. The scorpions were still ALIVE….I think I jumped back 10 feet! He kept gesturing to stick the wriggling scorpions (they should be dead cause their whole bodies are being pierced by a wooden stick!) into oil in order to fry them. He was persistent in ...
