Dag 9: Olifantenparadijs

De olifanten

IMG-20160718-WA0002
De dag begon vandaag voor ons met een bezoek aan het elephant care center. Dit is een opvang voor oude olifanten die ergens anders niet meer nodig zijn. In deze groep van olifanten, zaten olifanten die vanuit stammen kwamen, uit andere ‘reservaten’ of vanuit de entertainment. Hierdoor verschillen ze qua gedrag meer van elkaar.

De gids die ons ging begeleiden, was opvallend introvert voor zijn beroep. Hij wist ons wel het een en ander te vertellen over de olifanten, hun afkomst, de gebruikte medicijnen voor de olifant en de manier van verzorgen. Het viel ons op dat de ‘kooien’ vrij klein waren. We hadden verwacht dat de grote viervoeters vrij zouden lopen, maar dit was niet volledig het geval. De olifanten verblijven overdag in een houten omheining en gaan ‘s avonds naar de jungle om vrij te lopen.

Dan is nu de vraag wat wij hebben gedaan voor de viervoeters. Bananen uitdelen stond als eerste op ons lijstje. We kregen ieder een bak met bananen en verder hoefde er natuurlijk niet veel meer uitgelegd worden. Nadat de bananen op waren, zijn we ander voedsel voor de olifanten gaan maken. We hebben riet gecombineerd met andere ingrediënten tot een mengsel wat later aan de olifanten gegeven kon worden.

Ook hebben we snoepjes gemaakt voor de olifanten. Deze bestonden uit rijst, sesamzaad en een beetje suiker. Ook dit hebben we gevoerd aan de olifanten. Vervolgens zijn we met een olifant naar de wasplaats en de rivier geweest waar ze van ons een wasbeurt heeft gehad. Dit leek ze erg lekker te vinden. Nodig was het echter niet, want na beide wasbeurten gooide ze zich weer vies met modder, zand en bladeren.

Sunday MarketIMG-20160718-WA0000

Elke zondag is er de sunday Market waar een hele grote straat helemaal vol staat met kraampjes, deze kans konden wij niet laten schieten. Rond 7 uur na onze voorlichting voor de trekking gingen we richting de stad. Eerst hebben we heerlijk gegeten met de groep, om vervolgens rond 9u de markt te gaan bezoeken. Het was een grote markt wat goed bezocht werd door zowel toeristen als de lokale bevolking. Helaas hadden we de meeste spullen van de kraampjes al eerder voorbij zien komen, wat het spijtig genoeg minder interessant maakte. Toch hebben we genoten van het avondleven in Chiang Mai. Morgen zullen we vertrekken met de andere groep voor onze trekking van 2 dagen. Er zal daarom morgen geen blog post zijn, aangezien wij geen wifi hebben tijdens de trekking.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!

    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very

    I have been surfing online more than three hours nowadays,
    but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content
    as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
