oh yeah! yesterday we actually booked a kayaking and elephant thing.. it took us a while to find a good deal but lucky we did i think.. also yesterday we had really good street food!! chicken and padthai and other things. haha

okay so today we get picked up by our tour people.. first stop kayaking.. ive never gone kayaking before but i have been in canoes and junk.. so its sort of the same... it was raining again.. and the car ride to the river the water kept comming into the jeep and getting everyone wet..  we arrive at the river and time to get our kayaks in the water.. we put our stuff in a water proof bag which was cool!  i took the front seat for some reason and grzechu took the back seat.. and off we go!! kayaking against the current is hard.

. and it doesnt help that theres an annoying person yelling at you from behind.  stop criticising and start paddling!  i was pretty angry. yeah i get angry..  you could probably hear us arguing through the mangroves..

aside from that. the experience was pretty cool.. the water was too low and we couldnt continue but we headed to a little cove where we had a nice snack of watermelon.. perfect!  back to shore and off to a prepared lunch.  the lunch was local and it was gooood.

 

the elephant trek started and we got the elephant that pooped alot. we cross a river and into a little jungle.. our elephant kept head butting trees.. we got the elephant with issues.. but our elephant driver let us sit on the actuall elephant which was awesome and we got to feed it later.. and that was our kayak elephant day
