Kanchanaburi

Tourists travel from all over the world to see what the real The Bridge on the River Kwai looks like. It is more than just a name of famous film but this bridge also holds history of World War II. Also, tourists can travel by the train to many historical and natural attractions like Erawan Waterfall in Kanchanaburi.

More pictures from the sanctuary.  This was taken on our very first day, when we had just met the elephants and we (the elephants and the volunteers both) weren’t sure how to react.  Moey, the elephant, had been severely malnourished by her previous owners, and was on her way to recovery (that’s why she seems so skinny!).  She is a prime example of why the sanctuary and others like it are necessary.

“…the war has been over for many years, I have suffered much. But I know you have suffered too. And you have been most courageous and brave in working for reconciliation. While I cannot forget what happend in Kanchanaburi, I assure you of my total forgiveness. Sometime the hating has to stop.”
