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.
