Back at camp we watched an elephant show. They marched in a parade, played soccer, did tricks, dragged and piled up logs, and even painted a picture. After lunch by the river, we rafted down the river on a bamboo raft.
The next stop was at the Monkey Centre where we saw a demonstration of how monkeys are trained to pick coconuts from the trees
After some relaxation time by the pool, we headed out to the old part of the city for a Thai cooking lesson at the Smart Cook Thai Cookery School. www.chiangmaismartcook.com.
Our instructor had two plates of ingredients ready for each of us and showed us how to cut, organize ingredients on plates, and then make hot-and-sour soup and Pad Thai. They were, of course, delicious as was the other dishes served for dinner. We even got certificates... Though I doubt any of us will open a restaurant anytime soon.
