Vietnam restaurant offers roasted rat on stick as local delicacy | Mail Online.

Fancy a rat kebab?

It’s rat hunting season in Vietnam which means skewered vermin are back on the menu at a restaurant in Dan Phuong on the outskirts of the Vietnamese captial Hanoi.

Rat meat has been considered a delicacy for many years in southern areas of the south Asian country, and the taste for it is spreading.

Previously only eaten regularly by the northern Red River delta and southern Mekong River delta people, the taste for rat meat is spreading.

At this time of year, when rice is harvested, farmers in the south turn to rat hunting to capture the small animals for sale in markets

In the southern Mekong delta, hunting is particularly productive during the flood season when rats try to escape from their flooded hearths.

One kilogram of rat meat costs around 100,000 dong, or $4 to $5.

boris kanzberg: Любовь не с первого взляда.

(Kreung tribe of Cambodia)


Представители камбоджийской народности Креунг строят хижины из подручных материалов, занимаются сельским хозяйством и ведут патриархальный образ жизни. В их обществе сохраняется нулевой уровень преступности: на территории своих селений все жители чувствуют себя в полной безопасности. Но главное, что отличает Креунг – это полное отсутствие разводов и семейных конфликтов.

Таких результатов Креунг добились благодаря правительственным социальным программам сохранившейся традиции добрачных обрядов ( а точнее – интимных связей ) в так наз. “хижиах любви”.

Theravada Buddhism: Incredible pictures document the journey two young boys take to become Buddhist monks | Mail Online.

is one of the most momentous occasions in these young boys’ lives – and one of the most important duties their parents are to carry out for them.

Decked head to toe in vibrant costume and made up with lavish jewellery and make-up, these two boys are about to be ordained as Buddhist monks.

Under the Theravada form of Buddhism, widely practised in Thailand and Sri Lanka, the children are ordained during initiation ceremonies known as the ‘Going Forth’. Afterwards they become immersed in Buddhist teachings, potentially for the rest of their lives.

Vanishing Cultures Photography | “The Living Goddess”

Vanishing Cultures Photography | “The Living Goddess”.

October 2010 –

“It is forbidden to photograph the Kumari inside the Kumari Ghar” my young guide repeated these words several times. I explained to him that my original guide Buddhi had been granted special permission through his contacts to allow me the privelege. A quick phone call by him confirmed that this was the case and we proceeded to the home of Samita Barjracharya, the Living Goddess of Patan. She was eight years old, and lived in the god-house Kumari Ghar, where the Living Goddess performs her daily rituals. The power of the Kumari is perceived to be so strong that even a glimpse of her is believed to bring good fortune. We proceeded up some stairs and were greeted by her mother.  I was told to wait as the arrangements were relayed to her. She told my guide that Samita was not prepared but we could see her briefly. We were escorted into a small room about 3 m x 3 m, perhaps even smaller. A shaft of light penetrated the room from a small window next to the ceiling. A buzzing sound echoed through the small blue room from an overhead fluorescent light. Samita sat in a throne like chair her eyes fixed to the floor.  I asked if I could take some photos and her mother Purna Shova Bajracharya said that she would prefer that I came back tomorrow as she did not have have her fully prepared. She allowed me to take a couple of frames to test the lighting and framing.  Sitting on the floor my back was pressed against the wall while I tried to  photograph her. We made arrangements to meet the following day.
