We could have taken an elephant ride at Bang Pa-In but we have decided to save that trip till we are up north. We did see lots of elephants though. We were told they were fed whisky when they had to go into war, not sure we believe that but it makes a nice tale. They were used in battle before tanks, missiles and jets. White elephants are revered in Thailand and are considered lucky omens - we haven't seen any yet but still think we are very lucky to be here!

This is my favourite snatched shot of a boy and his baby elephant I think the unsynchronized feet are wonderful and his hairdo is off the scale!
