Riding Elephants

Aug 14, 2006

Location: Ko Samui, Thailand
Author: Katie T.
Today was our big day of touring Ko Samui. After our oceanography quiz in the morning we went to shore, got picked up by our van and headed a little creek where most of us canoed around, while others struggled with the steering and just went in circles. Next, we went to nice waterfalls where several of us swam in the pools. Then it was time to ride elephants! After our ride we watched a monkey show and an elephant show, during which Sarah M. and Bree got a massage from an elephant. To cap it all off, we went for a late lunch of local food in town and had an hour to tour around town before heading back to Argo. We heard a poem during the squeeze, and after dinner talked about fisheries in oceanography class.
