SIAM SAFARI

We have the most exciting day today.

We left at about 8:30am this morning on a "Safari Truck" as Brayden called it. We felt as though we should be in our army attire!

We went on a safari tour for half the day in the jungle. We saw how coconut milk and oil was made, rode in a cart pulled by a water buffalo and Jason sat bare back on the buffalo. We were entertained by a gorgeous and cheeky monkey that demonstrated how they collect coconut from the trees. We had a Thai cooking demonstration and saw a rubber tapping demo. They tapped the trees for rubber (it stunk!!)

Then we went to the Baby Elephant Training Centre. We watched the very clever baby elephants.....they were soooo cute!!!! One of them brought over a soccer ball for Brayden to take. He was very unsure. Some people received elephant kisses.

We got photos with the elephants and Brayden got to feed them fruit. He loved it!!!

After that we went on an elephant safari.......a ride on an elephant. Brayden loved it so much that he wanted to go again but of course only one ride was included.

We then went on a junk ride (boat) and enjoyed a beautiful Thai meal. Brayden made a little friend Lara from the Gold Coast.

We are now relaxing by the pool, ready for happy hour - buy one cocktail get one free!!!!!

Love to you all.......
