Meeting with a traveler – Szymon Przebinda

The meeting with the traveler – Szymon Przebinda, is organized on Friday, December 1, 2023, at Branch No. 1 of the Municipal Public Library at 9 Osiedlowa Street in Radom. The event starts at 5 PM. Admission is free! The topic of the meeting will be Exploring the Caves of Northern Laos – Searching for New Species of Spiders. The caves of Northern Laos hide many natural surprises. The invertebrates inhabiting these caves are often unknown to science. We went to Laos in search of new spider species. I will share the adventures of this expedition during the meeting on Friday, December 1, 2023, at the library on Osiedle Ustronie in Radom – announces traveler Szymon Przebinda.
With a backpack on our backs, we had to enter the tropical forest and sometimes navigate through it to reach a forgotten cave. The heat poured from the sky, the air humidity was high, and only after entering the cave could we rest a little from the heat. Various creatures were hiding in its recesses, such as spider-hunting wasps of the Pepsis genus. Small invertebrates with numerous agile limbs were the target of our search – recalls the traveler.
We ventured quite deep into the caves at times. The further into the cave, the less life we found. After leaving the caves, we had to make our way back through the tropical forest in the dark. That’s when the tropics came alive. Snakes, centipedes, spiders, scorpions, lizards, monkeys – all went out hunting, and mosquitoes searched for their hosts. It was unknown what awaited beyond the next tree. Sometimes we set out on our search only after dusk – shares Szymon Przebinda about the expedition.
During the meeting, original products from Mongolia, Morocco, and Turkey will also be available for purchase.
