Cobra: It's what's for dinner

Back on my first trip to Vietnam we had a little adventure on our last day. We went shopping for Cobra so we could have snake stew for dinner. I recently found the video tape and had it digitized. It took me a few hours to upload from Vietnam, I hope you enjoy it.

Note the first part is pretty innocuous and entertaining. Towards the end it covers a little Cobra bloodletting, so you may not want to watch the entire thing. Especially, if you don't want to see a beating snake hart outside of the snake.

Supposedly drinking the snake blood gives you strength. Uncle mixed it with alcohol; I suspect it was XO. In my case, I came down with a miserable cold the next day. So much for the magical powers of cobra cocktails.
