Phot and Juke (background) dedicating Dominique's spirit house.

Megs and I came back to Elephants and Friends for my last week.  While we were there we met a guy named Chris who'd seen our blog entry on this site and decided to check it out!  I was so happy the blog helped get the word out.

At the border from Cambodia to Thailand we met Rachael and Alex.  They helped us get through the border crossing and we convinced them to take the ALL DAY series of buses across Thailand to spend several days with us.  The photos in this entry are all Rachael's.

The most interesting thing that happened on this second trip was that Dominique's spirit house was erected, and I was honored to be able to pay my respects there.

I'm posting this entry on July 22nd, over a month after these pictures were taken, and in going through them again, all the feelings I have for this family come up.  I miss them, and I send them much love.

Enjoy the shots.  Thanks, Rachael!

DOH! Lol. What a dork. I'll change the spelling, RachAel. And I'm looking forward to the disk.

That's RachAel to you, mister! I just said to Alex, "did that disk get sent to Rich??" and I realize that it has NOT. I'm SORRY!! Will send it tomorrow, but glad to see you've pulled some of my pics off the internet. Elephants & Friends is so beyond words...and pictures don't hardly do it justice...
