The Snake Charmer!

By Savvouri
Taken again in Kathmandu! This charming guy would proceed to drape the snake around your shoulders without you even wanting him to and then demand 100 dollars for the pleasure!! Needless to say there were a few "discussions". LOL!

This is a great shot that works well in B&W.
I had (I would bet) the same 'discussions' with a snake-charmer in India and he didn't even 'charm' it! He just carried it around in a wicker basket showing it to pasty-faced new-arrivals. The discussions must be a universal language by now!
