The true Thai life

My experience in the elephant village was incredible!! Since it was such a rural village, it was amazing to be immersed in the daily lives of Thai villagers who grow and cook all of their own food, while also having time to explore Thailand on the weekends. Working so closely with the elephants made me appreciate how majestic they are, as well as putting me to hard work cutting sugarcane by the truckload! Another highlight was teaching at the local school, where the children there were unbelievably kind, welcoming, and polite. The staff was wondeful, the food was super yummy, and the overall atmosphere made it hard to leave.
