Asian Cultural Awareness Day

Tam Bui invited me to attend an Asian Cultural Awareness Day. It was full of song and history. The guys like to do rap and I have a hard time understanding rap when it's in English, never mind when it's in a different language. But I enjoyed the beat.

We had a little history lesson from three countries: Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. While the entertainers were performing, there was a constant video playing. While listening about Cambodia, there was a video playing about Cambodia. Likewise for Laos and Vietnam.

There was one gross incident on the video from Vietnam. A skinny long snake (from the tip of your out stretched hand to the tip of the other)was chosen. A razor then made a slice down the snake. The vendor then squeezed the snake by going down the length of its body with her fingers pressing the blood out. She got about half a glass of blood from the snake. She then drank it.

Repulsion defined.
