    Wow… that looks pretty amazing. Was it scary?

    • Shelley Munro

      No, it was fun, although it seemed a long way down.

  2. Savannah Chase

    So amazing…I love all the photo’s and travel stories you always share with us…

    • Shelley Munro

      I’m glad you enjoy them.

  3. Mary Kirkland

    That is so cool. I’m not sure I’d have the nerve to ride such a huge animal.

    • Shelley Munro

      There was a keeper with us as well. He had good control of his elephant.

      Thailand is an interesting country to visit, and the food is delicious!

    Fun! Even the elephant looks like it’s smiling!

    • Shelley Munro

      Up close they have freckles on their trunks and ears. So cute.

    Reality check. An ex circus elephant killed its vet keeper last week very near to where we live. It had been in a distressed state before leaving the circus but over the last few years, with a large enclosure and excellent care, it had become much better. Apparently it had become frightened and was trying to “protect” its keeper, how ironic! Even in captivity they are very dangerous.

    Ooh, that looks like all kinds of fun.
