Ok weIl, I have been on another train this time to Surrat Thani quite a hard name to pronounce and then a mini bus we are now in the jungle. This morning we set out to go Elephant riding, we had to go in the back of a truck, when we got there they had seats on the backs of elephants and we set off on 'elelphant back' (instead of horse back get it?). It was very like going on the back of a horse but it was much higher up and we were in a seat . It was also much much wablier and bumpier infact it wasn't really like a horse at all! There was a bit on the elephant ride where there was a narrow rock that we had to squeeze through. After that we came back to base camp at Baan Khao Sok.
We are staying in a treehouse...amazing! So far we have seen 1 lizard and 4 gekkos and a monkey. Now that is really amazing!
Right now we have just been on an explore up the river suprisingly the river was warm. We waded then found some bamboo to make a bridge and it actually worked, then downstream there was a peice of rock next to the river and we had to swim. We sheltered from the wind as Finn was getting cold. After that we scrambled along and mum made herself into a bridge putting her feet on the other side so we could lower ourselves down into the water. After a while of scrambling swimming and slipping and slidding on the slippy bits we finally went back.
We also went on a jungle walk,
swung like monkeys from liannas
jumped into a jungle pool with fish that nibble your toes
See you soon
