27 June 2009

Took a guided tour to Mae Taeng which has an elephant training center. The elephants are trained to perform several acts such as playing basketball and hockey. Then we went on an elephant ride that led us to crossing a river and riding through the jungle for about an hour.  Diane was as scared as she had ever been before.  She left hand prints on the iron bars safety bars on the seats. (HA)  We then rode on an oxen drawn cart for about 30 minutes. This led us through their village. We then rode on a bamboo made raft river for about an hour.  We left from that area and went to visit the orchid farm and then headed back to the hotel.

Don and Randy went to see the rice cultivating machines (made by Kuboto) for him to take pictures. This was our last day at Chiang Mai.
