Bamboo Rafting and Elephant Riding

In April 2000, when I was 14 years old, I went on a road trip to Kanchanaburi Province. I love going on road trips during the summer holidays. I take pictures for my website. You can learn about your country from textbooks in the classroom. But, I think itis more interesting to go and see it for yourself.
One day I went on an elephant ride. Here I am sitting on an elephant, it was very hot and shakey. First I didn't really like it (scared) but later on I felt very happy, but if it only was for a short time. I couldn't be on there for long because it might make me sick!
Sometimes we went into the jungle, sometimes in the river. In the picture, they are playing with the water and splashing everyone. It's make me wet. See the man with an umbrella, that shows how hot it is there. We had to put sun-cream on to protect our skin.

Next, I went on a Bamboo Raft trip. We climbed down this way to get on the bamboo raft. I nearly fell there. In the picture on the right, our guide is paddling the bamboo raft on the river.
I am wearing a life jacket, but don't think I can't swim, I can do it (but not really good). And we went down this river for about half an hour.
