anything goes

last night on the street in bangkok, i fed and pet an elephant. i guess it was a mid-sized elephant. my guess is that it was about 8 feet tall to the top of his/her head. i'll post the photo when i get home and get a better look at it.

i think someone in the group i was with gave the guy with the sugarcane(what we fed the elephant) the equivalent of like 2 american dollars.

you just don't see that kind of stuff in chicago.

later, i enjoyed two singha's for about a total of $3, played pool, and discussed near death experiences with the australians i'm working with.

earlier that day, i got to go to a thai grocery store to run some errands for my team. i nearly died on the 5 minute walk back to the hotel. it is nasty, stinking, hot and humid here at 3 in the afternoon.
