OK... back to the adventures in Thailand...
At the Mae Sa Elephant Camp you get a condensed view into the incredible world of elephants. Last time we were in Chiang Mai we visited Lek's Elephant Nature Camp, highly recommended, and I would have loved to have gone back there, but we wouldn't have been able to volunteer as much with Kai. At the Mae Sa Elephant Camp, the Mahouts put on a show. And it's quite the show...
|Getting Kai used to "elephano"|
|And the show begins!!!|
|The march of the elephants...|
|My parents are certainly thrilled...|
|Kai was quite giddy with excitement during the show...|
|After the show we got a nice hug from the elephants... Kai like them from distance, but his instincts kicked in and wasn't very happy up close.|
|Elephant poo! Probably weighed as much as Kai...|
|Afterwards we went on to feed the baby elephants...|
|who gladly accepted bananas...|
|they eat lots...|
|Obaa-chan taking a seat|
|On the way back, we stopped at the Mae Sa waterfalls. A really nice reprieve from the heat...|
|On the way home! I turned into his carseat...|
