Kid Interviews III

Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai, Thailand


Alex and Leah Interview Each Other About their Experiences at The Elephant Nature Park
(May 6-19, 2013)

" When I went to the zoo and saw an elephant I was like, I will never be close to an elephant, I'll never feed an elephant, I'll never pet an elephant, I'll never wash an elephant. Now I have and it is really really cool" - Alex

"Sitting in the shade you are still sweating!" - Leah

"The first time I took a cucumber and stuck it on a elephant's trunk and then she ate it - I was just like - I FED AN ELEPHANT! It was magical!" - Alex

"I like Jokia, one of the blind elephants . . . she is really gentle . . . When Jokia first came to the sanctuary another elephant (Mae Perm) went to help her. It's like the other elephant is her eyes, helping her. They are always together and never leave each other. They are best friends forever." - Leah

I'm wondering if the elephants recognized you by the end of your time there.

by Patty McGrath

Patty - We think they did but probably because they remembered that we brought bananas! Elephants sense a vibe, kinda like dogs and they could tell that we love them (Alex & Leah)

I am doing an interview with Lainie Liberti and her son Milo about travelling and schooling and during my research watched her video interview with you in Peru and wondered if you would like to join me on my show, The Sociable Homeschooler? I am doing a series on travelling un/homeschoolers and would enjoy getting your perspective as a newbie among my seasoned travellers who have been at it for years! Whew!!
If you are interested I will give you more information and you can talk with Lainie after our chat too, this Wednesday. I can record the show for publishing later.
I am on Toginet Radio live each Friday at 12 noon CT.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
