There are also two shows - one impressive tribal based one involved eating fire, playing with blow pipes and ritual humiliation of audience members (for those reality television devotees amongst us). This included the stripping of my friend half naked, the simulated poking out of a tribesman's eye with a flaming brand, and forced fire eating. Fun - but I'm glad it wasn't me!
After the Safari we went to the Newtown food bazar. These places are brilliant - for one there is a huge choice of menu, up to and over fifty stalls vie for your attention, palette and dollar; for two, they are a great place to feel immersed in the culture and style of the place. The food was fantastic - I would highly recommend stingray to anyone who hasn't tried it, spicy and delicious. It was also very, very cheap! We sat down at about half twelve at night, and tried to consume (roughly) our own body weight in curried sea food over the next two hours. Oh, and we drank a load of beer. Bliss.
