Pillar of living salt

Little bastard

Sikkim is infamous for its small black leeches. I’ve been attacked by one and ripped one of a student’s clothing. I’ve also seen a large one removed from a dog’s nose. Horrific.

Above is all that remained after a teacher found and salted one.

I know it’s God’s creature, too, but I have yet to come to terms with the leech.
