Cobra in the Kitchen

At 10 o’clock last night I was reading in my room and heard loud cries

The cobra that got into our kitchen last night.

from the kitchen where we cook over and open fire surrounded by three stones to support cooking pots. Malaye, our cook, spotted a red cobra near the fire. Yohana, a just graduated high school student staying with us ran into the kitchen with a stout stick and was able to kill the intruder.

The snake turned out to be a red cobra, a very venomous snake. We have a lot of those in the area. Putting the “dirty oil” around the house that I mentioned last week doesn’t seem to be doing the job. I think we need to look for a cat.
