    ... but quickly ran off if their boss came as they obviously were not allowed to charge for extras. I also fed a baby elephant a bottle of milk which went in about 10 seconds flat. We then watched them walk across the road down to the river for a bath. It was beautiful seeing them playing in the water. A couple of the elephants had skin conditions so the keepers had them lying down whilst scrubbing them. The elephants loved it!!! It was just amazing seeing 41 elephants playing in a ...

    ... choose to work there, why’d you marry so-and-so? Why? It’s the scariest one word question we’ve ever had to face, and we’re the only ones that can answer it.

    ... one occasion i could realistically wear it (when?!!! I can think of none!!) so I decided against it. We tipped the lady who had given us a little demo of how the silk is made and helped my get dressed. However, Driver said we needn't have tipped as it's just a shop. It's so confusing!

    I woke up and made my way to the garden. It had stopped raining and the sky was clear. As I sat down for breakfast, the owner came up to me and asked me tea or coffee. I also asked her what she recommended I do. She mentioned the elephant orphanage – which surely would have led me to tears. I declined.
