Today we met our elephants. After breakfast they trundled into the yard of the residence and we all got a chance to chose one which we would walk with and then feed it some of the bamboo we cut yesterday. Then we took them about half a mile to the river to bathe and splash around. It was lovely to see them having such fun and the babies were clearly having a great time. After lunch we went to the place they make elephant poo paper and all made a sheet ourselves, then visited the elephant graveyard. After that we had a cooking lesson, essentially making our own meal and had a talk about elephants in Thailand and the problems they are trying to deal with. It’s more complicated than you might imagine.
