A couple of weeks ago, "the gang" went on an elephant trek at Kok Chang Kata Safari, between Rawai and Kata Beach.  Tim actually set aside her fear of elephants and joined me on the back of a large one for a 30-minute ride through the jungle.  I even got to play mahout for a while as I drove the elephant during the second half of the trek, steering from atop his head.  I didn't feel as secure up there as I appear in the photos; I especially thought I was going to tumble off as we descended a steep hill at the end.
