Today was great! Got up early to go to the elephant camp only an hour on a bus, which is nothing now! When we arrived we were given tshirts and trousers to wear for the day. Both of us could have gotten into a pair together! Then we spent the morning learning Thai so we could communicate with the elephants, we learnt all the command words like yo karrr which means leg up and soooon which is higher. We then had to use everything we had learnt to get on the elephants! We rode the elephants through a jungle path to a pond and had loads of fun washing and scrubbing the elephants and getting squirted in the face!

We went out for dinner with a Canadian couple (Ray and Rayleen), that we had met in Bangkok, before meeting up with around 10 others people to go to the Muay Thai boxing. Muay Thai is Thailand's national sport and great fun to watch. We drank beer and gambled - 20 bhat each match which is about 10p! After the fight we moved to a bar and had a little after party!

Guys tats more like it, stay away from the pussy cats, Talking about cats you will enjoy this, from you know who:

Has Mr. Max been in fighting again? He went to bed at 3pm and I have just called him down for supper, but he didn't want to get up (I know how he feels!!) He did eventually come down, but is limping again, which probably means he has another war wound. No doubt I shall be vet bound first thing tomorrow morning :)
