Hiiiiiii.. we have had an amazing day! We went to ride the elephants today. We rode one of them called Mallam, she was a girl and was grey and pink. First we rode her with like a box on her back which we sat in, through the jungle for about 45 minutes.. at times it was scary! Then we got to learn how to control her, using laos words for stop, go and slow down, this meant we were able to just sit on her back bare. Hannah was sat at the front at first, with her legs behind mallums ears, with jess struggling for life sat behind. We then rode her down to the water, again a quite frightening experience, and she took is the water, where she splashed us with water from her trunk and we washed her. We then switched places and rode back up the hill. So, a pretty cool day! After we went to sowem waterfalls, amazing clear blue, had a swim and a jump, and came back home. Just had some lovely food in the night market, Hannah has purchased anoth bag!, and then we are going to support our home team who are infact useless! Up at 5am for our monster journey, so speak to you in Vietnam. ( although not sure when exactly as we are going to halong bay!) Lots of love xxxxxx.
