Yikes! Snakes!

Shown above is Patrick, the night watchman for Meagan Hawley's house. While I was in the US, Patrick killed an eight-foot long black mamba--with his slingshot!!! He saw the snake up in a tree on his farm a few miles away from Namwianga. He brought the mamba--one of the deadliest snakes in the world--to Namwianga and David couldn't resist getting his picture made lying beside the snake carcass.
A few nights later, the night watchman at the Mann Guesthouse (two doors away from us) killed a puff adder, another very dangerous snake. We're thankful for these diligent guys who watch out for us!
