Elephant village in Thailand

This trip was the best thing I have ever done! I flew into Bangkok where we stayed the first couple of nights. We got to explore the city and tour temples. We were immersed into the culture. Then we went to the elephant village. We stayed in the village and were instantly welcomed into the community. We got the opportunity to connect with the kids and the village people. We would do work in the morning and afternoon. We made elephant poo paper, cut bamboo, plant banana trees, mix cement, clean elephant areas, feed elephants and walk elephants. It was hard work but it was so much fun! The staff were great! I always felt welcome and they were there to answer any questions. The other volunteers are now people I call friends! It was a great experience and I will cherish it forever. I am already planning my next trip to Thailand.
