wow! that's a freakishly big python you are selling!

The last time I ventured out to Bac Ha with some friends I took them to see the Sunday Market that Bac Ha is famous for. If you've never been, you really should check it out! Cool place. Well, as we were entering the market I saw a really odd looking meat for sale, which turned out to be python meat! Seeing how large the skin of the snake was I inquired with the lady selling the meat as to where she had killed it. Her answer was a relaxed, "At home." At home I thought to myself? Finding a snake this big "at home" would be a sure fire way to make it my home no more. Had I been her I would have answered, "At my former home. I've moved now!". Yes, this would make more sense.
