Once there, we checked out the beautiful local crater lake and some waterfalls, cycled through the rubber plantations and shouted "hello" to about a million Khmer children.
Next we went on a 3-day trek with a local guide, Narin. He took us into the jungle, showed us how to catch fish with a net, how to cook rice in bamboo and how to get scratched to pieces by brambles
Afterwards, we bought two chickens from a local woman and Narin showed us how to kill them. I've killed fish before with Dad, but never anything larger. But I do think it would be a little hypocritical for a carnivore such as myself not to be willing to kill an animal when required. We tied the feet of the chicken together, crouched and lightly stepped on the feet and one wing of the chicken, held the head with one hand and cut the neck with a knife. Job done.
Actually it was pretty scary and a very strange experience. But on the plus side, the chicken was pretty tasty.
