Baan Chang Elephant park
These photos are from the day AlteCocker played mahout--or tried to play mahout. A word to anyone with back problems: Playing mahout will kill your back. AlteCocker did not last long, but she did get the photos. Most fun was bathing the elephants. They squirted water at us. Be well warned, however, that elephants, uh, do it wherever. There were lots of elephant dung pellets in the water! You do need a good shower when you are done. Baan Chang (which, by the way, means "elephant park" in Thai) has only cold showers. AlteCocker took one there and another when she got home!
