Hup Two Three Four!

Keep it up, two, three, four!


The same day we visited the monkey temple, we also spent some time with elephants.


Big animals have a special place in my heart (which might explain why we have such large dogs), and I would gladly raise a baby elephant in my back yard if the home owners association allowed it.



Look at his cute little tongue! :

Heidi was so cute feeding him!


Then I fed some of the big boys:


And then I RODE ONE!



Now, I felt a little bad after finishing the elephant ride. Surely, these sweet guys would be happier in the wild...

And then I realized that this is Thai culture. Elephants are a HUGE part of their national identity, and always have been.

It was fun, plain and simple. I loved every second of it, especially my time with the wittle baby elephant.

I can't believe I've already been here 6 days. Only one week left in this beautiful place!
