First place that we went was Mae Sa Elephant show and Elephant riding.
My husband and April ride the female elephant, which is 45 years young. May and me ride the male elephant which is only 20 years young.
This was April's second time riding the elephant. She had experienced the riding at Phuket in year 2006.
Baby elephants marched out and the show officially began.
Elephants were able to play football. Though their skills weren't as good as those in the World Cup, it was enough hilarious to receive a big applause from the crowd.
Elephant could paint too.
Amazing right? The elephant could paint better than a human, for e.g. myself.
Elephants played a tele-match with the audience. My husband volunteered himself for the games.
This was the painting which was done by one of the elephant, and it was placed for auction at 2000 baht during the show.
After the show, the audience was allowed to feed and take photos with elephants. April was quite scared to touch the elephant.
Whereas May was more daring than her Jie Jie.
I enjoyed watching the elephant show very much. However, I also very sympathized the elephants, as they must have gone through a very painful life, in order to be trained to do all these very intelligent movements.
