Just love those elephants!

While in Thailand, you cannot escape the thrill of watching all the tricks that the elephants are able to perform.

I actually bought this painting to make a partner for my other elephant painting. For this picture you can tell it is a tree, and it was fun to watch the elephant keep blotting the paper for the leaves. I couldn’t resist this masterpiece for the price of $12.oo US dollars.

The tour guide thought it was very important to go for a ride on an elephant, also for the bargain price of $12.00 for a 20 minute ride around the beautiful gardens. I was concerned that I would not be able to get a picture on the elephant, but towards the end of the ride, the trainer just walked beside and took pictures. I really was riding and elephant.

Where else can you see Thailand’s Stonehenge on the back of an elephant.

Last time Mark and I rode on an elephant we got the big Mama, this time I got the baby!

Look at the beautiful orchids!

Yesterday I visited Nong Nuch Garden which is a tropical paradise.

Laura you would love all the orchids.

Tiffany’s Show

Last night a group of 12 of us went to see the famous Tiffany Show. It is the first ever truly transvestite cabaret show in South East Asia. With over 28 years of stage experiences, the fame of Tiffany’s show is undeniable and a must see when you visit Pattaya. The beautiful costumes, toe tapping choreography, special lightening and effects, music especially written for Tiffany’s, like the song “I like being a girl” , en-framed in wonderfully detailed scenery, made it a memorable night. Each night of the year they perform with 3 different shows, to an audience of 2,000 people.

No pictures were allowed to be taken in the theater, and the ushers made sure of this, so all the pictures were taken after the show.

Pattaya Thailand

From Wikipedia,

Pattaya is a city in Thailand, located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, about 165 km southeast of Bangkok, the population is over 100,000.

We arrived yesterday and went out for a delicious fresh seafood dinner. I especially enjoyed the deep fried soft shell crabs.

Today the sun was shining so sitting by the beautiful pool was a treat.

It looks like the pool has no end.

We are on the 18th floor, so a view from our patio overlooking the beach.

I decided to be brave and go for a walk along the beach. As you can see there is not much sand because the ground is covered with chairs, which I assume you rent for the hour.

Many small areas along the street to make an offering.
