This photos says it all!  We are in the land of elephant rides and wonderment.  Yes, boys and girls, I believe Ralph and Mark have now DONE IT ALL.

This is called Smoking Buddha.  I am told that Buddha liked to smoke, so this statue is provided with a LIT cigar, at all times.  It's always smoking.

Well, sooner or later we had to ride an elephant
This place was Elephant-everything
Of course, you have to sign away your life
Memories of yesteryear, here is Ralph as the King of Siam
The driver of the elephant sits on his head.
Just after we got on top of the elephant, you can tell that Ralph was not confortable with the whole idea
The Wild and Crazy Elephant Ride

You have to look at this photo carefully.  We shot this looking straight down the left side of our elephant.
Oh, the horror of poo everywhere on the trail!
By the way, this plantation was a Rubber plantation.  Look at the rubber dripping out of the trees!
This is what people look like, as they ride the elephants
Check this out.  This is how we get cashews.  A single cashew nut grows our of a cashew fruit.  Weird, eh?
This is the lady who cracks open the outer cashew nut, revealing that soft, yummy nut that we all love so much.
Of course, we were coralled into the gift shop!
