Elephants, Monkeys, & Lizards!

Location: Kanchanaburi, Thailand

We travel north from Kanchanburi to the elephant camp and then to cool off in Erawan Falls.

Tourists rafting down the river past our elephants. The rafts are made of bamboo and often break apart along the way.

Mr. Thomgen, the elephant, decides that Chris should cool off with some river water.

We are roasting (in January?!) and running to the next pool for a dip in the water. Emily does the whole thing by herself.

The third of seven gorgeous pools at Erawan Falls.

A wild monkey we came across in the forest on our way down from the top of the falls.

Playing Robinson Crusoe...we are the only peopleat this jungle pool.

Our Bangkok contact for Volunthai, Oh, going over arrangements for our teaching assignment in rural Thailand. John is showing her how people touch us and try to rub our skin.

Tim researched this creature to find out what it is...It is a monitor lizard (one species of monitor lizard is the komodo dragon.) They can run fast for short distances and open their mouth wider than their head so that they can swallow children in large chunks (just kidding.)

I know it looks like a ridiculous amount of baggage, but remember there are 6 of us. This is Anakoon, who works at the hotel in Bangkok. His hands are in the position of a traditional Thai greeting (or wai.)
