Thailand – almost-Komodo on the Beach

Asian water monitor lizard, Thailand

I remember sitting on the beach while this big lizard came from the stones.
Not the best experience…
As fast as I could, but slowly, I moved to the safer arrea. 😉

I thought, it was a Komodo dragon, but they don’t live in Thailand; it’s a close cousin of komodo, called Asian water monitor lizard.

Thailand – Long Neck

Karen Long Neck Tribe, Thailand

Karen or simply Long Neck is a name of a tribe from Myanmar (Burma), but also living in Thailand these days.
Karen women are very characteristic, because they wear several metal rings around their necks, wrists and ankles.
