Although we can't predict where the elephants will be its likely that you will see one at some time during your photography painting holiday and have a ride if you like. http://thailand-painting-holidays.com Visit our art and photography guest house in NE Thailand https://plus.google.com/u/0/104359568476968412848?rel=author

*A dancing girl at an open air free show common in NE Thailand.*  In between songs they perform sketches which are very funny, even to me despite my not understanding a word.
