Grilled squirrel for breakfast

Simon Reeve continues his epic journey around the world following the tropic of Cancer, the northern border of the tropics region.

Simon Reeve discovers that in forested Laos the locals eat everything that grows, crawls and scampers in the woods, as he is given a breakfast of grilled squirrel and fried caterpillars by a Lao chef.

Simon suspected he might actually be eating rat, and his Lao guide wasn't entirely reassuring.

After travelling around the tropic of Capricorn and the equator, this series completes Simon's trilogy of journeys exploring the amazing tropics region with his toughest, longest, most ambitious challenge yet.
