Elephants!

This picture was taken outside of Luang Prabang in Laos. Luang Prabang has some really nice stuff to offer tourists; great shopping, good food, nice temples, and some excursions. We went on this excursion where we rode elephants and got to see an amazing waterfall, where we went swimming. The elephant riding was lots of fun, and there are different deals you can work out. Some you only ride for an hour, some are all day training sessions with elephants where they actually go in the water and bathe. Whatever your preference you should be able to find a place and set up a day trip on the main road area in Luang Prabang. This elephant was a baby, so obviously we were riding a much bigger one, but this little guy was really cute, and curious!

Elephant in the Field

This photo was taken at Samburu National Reserve in Kenya. Samburu is a great reserve, it’s a different sort of environment than you get with some of the other parks.
