Bamboo rafting and elephant trekking

Kristin and I leave today for a 2 day trek to a traditional mountain village. On the way we'll swim in a waterfall, a hot springs, and hike 4 hours. To leave the village, we'll make a bamboo raft and raft for 2 hours and finish with a 1 hour elephant trek to the road and an option to white water raft. The white water rafting is 10K or people can just swim and wait for a truck back to Chiang Mai (the city where we're staying). I don't plan on white water rafting. It's raining pretty hard so I'm sure the jungle trek will be a bit uncomfortable. I suppose it's better to be a bit uncomfortable and have an adventure than hang out in front of my TV watching DVDs in my 750 foot condo. :)

This food you two made sounds amazing. Perhaps even I would like it! We'll have to see.

Is this the first rain you've run into in Thailand? I know Kristin said the forecast was for rain during the first part of your trip. Actually, I can believe there would be more rain in the rain forest, duh.

Hope all is well. Your condo is waiting for you, so enjoy the rest of your adventure.
