The real Thailand…in the fields of the North #GoThai

Today was a day in the fields, cutting corn stalks for the elephants evening snacks at the Elephant Nature Park.

We were taken out to the farmlands and spent the morning cutting off corn stalks and loading them onto the truck.

A mad work day. Hot, sweaty, dirty, heavy work, but a really great day out in the fields with the local Thai workers.

We then piled on to the top of the loaded truck and flew through the village streets, dodging low-hanging power lines and trees for fear of decapitation.

This is the real Thailand.
