Day 2 on our project. As many of our returners can testify, the projects can be hard work, so we hope you’re ready. Depending on how far the construction has progressed with the local staff we have been hiring over the last few weeks, jobs can include lugging bricks, shifting sand, painting the buildings, and of course playing with the kids.
The third day of our project visit. Hopefully your body isn’t hurting too much, and you kept the sunburn at bay. After our first full day yesterday, day 3 should be a breeze (don’t hold us to that!). You’ll know exactly what you have to get done in order for the project to be ready to open. So, hop to it.
This one could be an early start! It depends on how hard we’ve been working but today is the opening day. So if we’ve stayed on top of our workload, we’ll arrive after breakfast and await the village elders to inaugurate the finalized construction, and have a local religious opening ceremony to bless your generosity and graft. If we’ve fallen behind, we’ll be up at sunrise to get here and get the work finished. Let’s do it folks.
After the project, it’s a beautiful drive through the national parks of central Thailand to reach perhaps our favorite spot in the whole world, Chiang Mai. We’ve organized dinner on the river for the group, we’re all earned a slap-up Thai dinner after the last few days of hard graft.
Often the highlight of the trip, and a real privilege for all of us – today we go to the Elephant Sanctuary. As responsible tourism has developed, thankfully Elephant Riding is on the decline. We visit a sanctuary where the founders give elephants the chance to escape that old life, and life the rest of their days with the friends and family in peace. Bring even more joy to their life by feeding them endless bananas, washing them in the river, and pack your pyjamas. We’re sleeping here tonight, which means the following morning, we’ll have the elephants all to ourselves.
