The island of elephants... or Lost?
Here you can see one of the cats in the project, Honey, who had to have a piece of one of her front paws amputated.
I show you a sample of the spectacular sunrises and sunsets that I have been able to enjoy...
The island in general is quite touristy like most of Thailand and you see a lot of Europeans/Americans with Thai girls. In fact a couple of days ago I met three Swedes in their fifties in the restaurant who had survived the 2004 tsunami that caused thousands of deaths in this area. One of them was with a Thai woman and he said he loved her because she gave him everything he needed but she seemed totally out of place and unhappy and that made me sad. Thailand has one of the highest rates of prostitution in the world and moves millions of baht with sex tourism. I am not going to go into the subject in depth but I read a piece of information that surprised me and that is that there are some organisations that estimate that there are 800,000 minors in Thailand who are involved in prostitution. In case you are interested, there is a very interesting organisation that has been fighting against child prostitution for years. You can find more info in the following links
