The mystery 'snake man of Savah', Iran.

We had stopped in Saveh for a 'food shopping' stop... oh, and I ended up in having an opticians appointment (another story, another time). When I got back to the truck a strange scene was unfolding with this guy, a monkey in a cage, and this massive snake in a box.

People put money into a bucket and there was lots of banter on a loud hailer, and raising of hands by the crowd. Then as suddenly as he arrived, the man left... and nothing happened!

Saveh, Iran.
