Tasting Tarantula

What do you do at a petrol stop at Skon, about 75 kilometres north of Phnom Penh? Try some crispy fried tarantula, that's what.


  1. Next challenge, when you come back Nat, eat an Eyeball!

  2. To be honest, I'm surprised you held out as long as you did.

  3. THAT is the best thing I've seen on the net in a while....

  4. As someone who had a very similar reaction to trying sheep brains I commend you.

  5. I am impressed that you put it in. I cant beleive greg got out of it for being a vegetarian. Well done Nat-star!!

  6. I'm with Greg on this one.

    "Oh, wow, that looks really...um...culturally significant. I'd love to try some! It's tofu-based mock spider, right? Oh. Oh, well, you try it. Tell me what it's like. It looks...great. Just great."

  7. I follow GC around the world saying "See that *Insert terrifying animal that should never ever be eaten* over there.. EAT IT! .. I would.. If i could"

    and sometimes she does!

    and sometimes I get video!

    Life is good...

  8. And as long as you keep a firm grip on the camera life will continue to be great
    But...the day will come when you will be in a market, somewhere in the third world, and the fruit of the snot nosed phlegm tree will be produced for your perusal and delectation...
    And the giggling from behind the camera will be a pleasure to listen to
