Occupy the Tiger's Cage

Somewhere North of Chiang Mai

This post was delayed  from December 9 until I could work out some issues with the a new sim card.

We are moving up into the Golden Triangle this morning for three dayswith Bennett and Ken (our driver and guide). Yesterday we took a long ride on an elephant and Mrs. Phred spent 15 minutes in a cage petting a very large tiger.

Ken is our driver. Bennett arranged for us to hire him for a week to see the more remote areas of Northern Thailand. He's doing a great job.

We stopped in an orchid farm.

We stopped to see some butterflies and settled for a tub full of scorpions.


  1. Bummer...hopefully you will be able to buy another sim card to continue with and will figure out how to get around the glitch of the old one....sil

  2. well glad you figured it the big cat with sil

  3. Is that an elephant trunk in your hand or are you just glad to be in Thailand?
