We did find a great place to go that fitted what we wanted
It was an amazing day. We were able to get really close to some of the elephants, touch them, feed them, play a little with the younger ones, watch them in their groups, and watch them as they played in the river. They are very gentle animals but are really giants. Most of them definitely prefer cucumber over pumpkin. They like to have a good scratch on the wood if they get a chance and they can easily sneak up on you if you are not watching.
In the evening we went to the Riverside bar, after taking a tuk tuk with the biggest sub woofer I have even seen (in a tuk tuk). It was rather embarrassing , if not hilarious to rock up to the bar with the base box booming out some god awful euro trash. Whilst we were supping on our whiskey and cokes we realised that no one else was sitting in the same area we were as the tide was coming in – up to our feet! God help the fans that were bowing in our faces. A health and safety nightmare Not something the locals seemed to worry about.
We then went on to the Reggae bar (yes, every place has one) to drink very sugary mojitos and have a little boogie. Only to come out of the bar and walk straight into an elephant with a flashing red light on its tail being used to make money from tourists. What a bizarre way to end this day.
