Swimming with the Elephants

I have a friend ,B-Bie , whose friend is the director of the Kanchanaburi Conservation Elephant Camp, and we were invited to spend the day interacting with the elephants ,Molee , Tom Moon , and Tom Boon. We were to walk in the fields and jungle , cut corn, and feed them , and take them to the river for their daily bath. We did all this and what a great day we had , never in my life have I had such a experience. So , to make a long story short, I was standing on the bank of the river watching folks and the trainers giving the elephants a bath , when all of a sudden, I don't know what come over me , I pull off my cloths and jumped in the river and swim out to Molee and she let me on her back ,and then and there I was swimming with the elephants, what a RUSH. If ever you get a chance to do the same " do it " I felt just like Tarzan of the movies, and comic BOOKS of my childhood . Have you ever done a something so all of a sudden? I hope so . Life is full of surprises.
 This was a day to remember

Hey Malcolm,
You look right at home on top of that elephant! Everyone else is slipping and sliding and you are sitting right up with a bit of a bored look..ha ha ha
