Chiang Mai is backpackers paradise; With an abundance of jungle treks, rafting, elephant riding and the like, Chiang Mai is perfect for the adventurous traveler. However, just an hour outside of the city, with a more humble background, the Baan Chang Elephant Park is a chance to provide healthy human interaction, feeding, and exercise to rescued elephants.

("Seibu Dome, Tokorozawa City, Saitama – Japan. We sat in the 5th row behind 1st base at the Saitama Lions – Chiba Marines game. Though the lions lost, we were still able to catch a great game and learned a few cheers from the different fans. Ganbatte!")
