Khao Yai National Park

People were preparing for the flood by using sandbags
A nice presentation of mole crickets. Ryne wanted to try them, but a lady said they must be cooked or he will die. They were a bit pricey anyway, almost a dollar for one.
Chang Mai Saturday Market. One of my favorite things to do is shop at local markets and see what goods they have to offer. We were the only tourists at this market despite being a few blocks away from a very tourist infested area.

It didn’t take us long to get out of the sweltering heat and high waters of Bangkok (it is as bad as it appears in the media!) and into pristine, lush jungle. We spent the last 5 days camping at Khao Yai National Park where we saw wild elephants, gibbons, macaques, hornbills, an indian rock python and much more. The campground was packed with Thais! We didn’t realize that they liked to camp so much. Although some were pushed out of their homes because of the flood. We took a bus through the floods and people were fishing and boating down the same road as us! Extreme flooding!!
