Chiang Mai:Yes More Elephants Alex

When we were in Kanchanaburi, the running joke was when people would ask one of our British Teachers: "Is this Elephants we're going to see now Alex?" And Alex would assure us: "Yes, this is elephants." Well, my hunch is that Alex's father is reading this so let me assure you Mr. Swan, this is elephants.

Our guide, Kam, asked for a volunteer to ride on the elephant's head since we were a bit short of space on the regular parts that we normally ride on. I put up my hand. "Yes, yes, elephants are old hat to me" I replied. I felt like Forrest Gump when he says: "Then I went to the White House...again... and met the President...again..." Yup, Sarah, it's just another day in Paradise. Ride an elephant...

raft down an ancient river...

Take in gorgeous Mountain scenery...

just your average Tuesday. So how was your day?

Bozoette: I wish I could express the beauty. Just get ear plugs for the Rooster Crowing.

Sarah:A little tip. When you come over and ride the elephants with me next time, wear slacks. I did this ride in my shorts and it felt like I had me legs on two brillo pads. These big fellas have 'COARSE HAIR'. You and Bren need to come over and visit. The first ride's on me! Love you!
