After the seeing these women, we went to our next Halloween activity, riding elephants. Since there were only three elephants and four of us, my Mom and I were on one and Stefan and my Dad were on another. At first, we just went tromping along the road, which lucky for us, had no cars around. Pretty soon, we got off the road and went down to the river. With us on top of them, the elephants went into the river. They started swinging around and my Mom and I tried to hang on, trying not to fall in! Once we pulled ourselves up and got a grip on the rope that was tied around him, the elephant sat down in the middle of the water and dunked us into the river. When we got back up on it, we got sprayed by the elephant's trunk. Meanwhile, my Dad was on the side with his camera yelling "Again, again," so this counted as the trick part of trick-or-treat (which I think was much more fun than coming up behind someone and yelling BOO!).
After the elephants, we went on a raft made of bamboo and we traveled down the river. We also visited a water fall that had a bat cave. How perfect on Halloween! For Halloween night, we went to the night market in Chiang Mia, which has all types of vendors selling different stuff like Buddhas, jewelry, and wooden toys. Later, we went back to the hotel in a tuk tuk, which is like a mini car. And that ends our Halloween ... Happy Halloween!
Until next time!
