    I suggested awhile back to Mrs W we go elephant trekking, she said no way to dangerous. At the time i sorta said to self really.
    We rode past Elephant village back of Pattaya you could see some Elephants, Mrs W just stiffened in fright as we passed..
    Not unfounded it seems.

    saw a doco recently on tattoos in Thailand.... they were first used on the mamouts to protect them against the elephants... they were applied by the monks and were thought to hold special powers of protection... it is thought to be one of the most hazerdous jobs in LOS

    I thought Elephants were universally loved in LOS seems they are equally feared...
    Mrs W likes images and statues.
