Photos taken in Laos

Photos of "Snake Wine" bottles (in Vietnamese: rượu rắn) containing snakes (often Cobra) and various other animals (lizards, centipeded, scorpions etc).­ I took those photos in Vietnam and Laos.­

Snake wine is an alcoholic beverage that includes a whole snake in the bottle.­

It is also prepared using other criters, preferably venimous, e.­g.­ Scorpions, centipedes, geckos, wasps, and I have even seen one made with black birds.­

Snake Wine is a specialty of Vietnam and Laos.­
