Elephants: I have riden on two things in the past few days that I have always wanted to but never had the chance. The first was an elephant - at first I was sitting on the back with my dad with this guy leading the way by the head. Then it was my turn. I had been having reservations about riding the elephant. Although it was the first thing I thought of when I booked this trip, when I mentioned it to my mate she was all animal rights up my arse about it. Fair enough since she is here to work at a wildlife conservation and well I am veggie and all. Even as I was sitting on it I was saying to my dad that I didn't kown about this. But the moment they offered me to move on to the front I left all my rightous animal rights sentiments behind and jumped right on. With my legs behind the ears I rode that elephant, up hills, down hills through streams and so on. jeysus the smell off me when we were done. While I was walking away a baby elephant felt me up with his/her truck. cheeky little thing
Taxi: Then today after a visit of the bridge over river kwai, we decided to get a taxi back into town. The 45 min walk to it along cement roads was more then we could handle back. The only taxi's were motorcyles. Although I use to really like the idea of getting my motorcylce licence I have developed a fear of them. I had planned for my 23rd b-day to ride a moped in rome, but I had one look at the traffic and chickened out. Now four year later I am jumping on the back of one in Thailand. Here were lanes are optional, direction for that matter is up to the driver and here I am saying go right ahead, take me on the death trap. After a few mins my clench loosened and I started to enjoy the breeze, the first time I had been cooled off in 5 days.
