While in Thailand, you cannot escape the thrill of watching all the tricks that the elephants are able to perform.
Look at those hula hoops go!
This was a first to watch the elephants play darts.
They did a great job bowling, even in their partners lane.
The elephants paint.
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!
