I have bought many things since being away, mainly a large amount of very colourful clothes that will become redundant the second I land on Heathrow’s grey and rainy platform. Although I did not actually buy the following, I feel that in light of their uniqueness they deserve a mention.
1) The stuffed giant frogs that made purses…suitable for almost all occasions
7) Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of this last commodity so you will have to imagine them. These are small glass flasks of moonshine infused with different animals and insects. Snakes, cockroaches, lizards and so forth are crammed into the bottles and submersed in a yellowy liquid. I can confirm that I did not try any of these for fear of going blind.
