A muddy river runs through it, the lush green valley of the Elephant Nature Park. This sanctuary for rescued and retired elllies lies one hour north of Chain Mai. It has been our home for two spectacular days. From luxurious space pod accommodations of the Bangkok Novotel, to a simple hut in the jungle, surrounded by freely roaming ellies. And a lot of mud. Who knew that getting into the swift-flowing monsoon fed river with Mae Perm, my beloved grand old ellie lady, and hurling bucket-loads of water over her thick grey skin, could feel ecstatic! I, with hundreds of other people, have flown half-way around the world to do this.

Chris is putting hundreds of photos and video clips onto the hard drive, so we can take even more! Loads to follow.
