Comic #23 - Chiang Mai - 24 March 2017
Yep. This happened.
We were in Chiang Mai visiting the excellent Elephant Nature Park on a one-day visit. I was trying hard to keep my new clothes clean (not so easy when you're hanging out with elephants who love bathing in mud!) but near the end of the day at bath time, I got a little too close to the elephant's pool and fell in.
When visiting Thailand, make sure you only give money to support an ethical elephant organization, and not one that mistreats or abuses the elephants. The Elephant Nature Park is one such organization that helps rescue and rehabilitate abused elephants.
