  1. Wow… that looks pretty amazing. Was it scary?

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

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

  4. I’m glad you enjoy them.

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

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

  7. My dream is to visit Bangkok. Love this!

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

  9. I think riding an elephant would be fantastic.

  10. It was a highlight of our trip.

  11. Holy. Smokes. That looks cool!

  12. The elephants were very cool. :)

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

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

  15. 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.

  16. Ooh, that looks like all kinds of fun.

  17. It was great fun!
