Tropical Critters

Josh and I divided our time in Thailand with a brief hiatus to Khao Yai National Park through Greenleaf tours. We took a nice air conditioned bus to get to the Packchong and then did tours for a day and a half. The first night, we saw tarantulas, vipers, and cave bugs. At dusk, we watched an undulating and neverending stream of bats leave their cave to get food. During the day tour, we saw gibbons, snakes, centipedes, scorpions and even a crocodile, all in the wild. Oh, and a few waterfalls as well. (Sadly, we didn’t get to see any elephants.)

We stayed at the cheapest hotel of the trip, which was only $22/night. Guess what? No cockroaches! We did have a little pond outside our room, where every night, we could watch bullfrogs swim and call out to each other, their throats ballooning up and down.

P.S. I’m posting from Japan, which has no three-pronged outlets (poor planning on my part), so photos are unfortunately limited to the ones on my phone until we get back to the USA when I can pull the rest from my computer.
