I want to ride on elephants too!

Hi Kojak ! If you go to Laos, you can do it in several agencies which try to save the elephant with tourism business (several days treking or just half day walk in the jungle). Because of mecanisation, elephants are no more usefull for wood business and taking care of them is very expensive. So they are abandonned in the jungle and become a threat for the gardens near the villages because they don't know how to feed themselves in the jungle. It was hard for us to find them but a great experience...

Cheers, JiCe.

PS: if you want more details on our Laos trip you can visit our web site "Mektoub": http://vchery.free.fr, but sorry the comments are in french ;-)
