Farewell my dear friends!

Today we all went off in different directions home or on other travels, and I have to say… Dangit it was hard to say goodbye. We had an amazing journey together, and it was unforgettable! I want to thank you all so much for all your hard work and dedication to these projects. You have done…



The lastttt melon

Whimpers and sighs filled the air this morning on our last day at the sanctuary. It was a tough time having to say goodbye to the elephants and the amazing people we spent all week with. We got one last chance to feed the elephants this morning, and we definitely made the most of it….



You silly goose!

I can’t believe this was our last day of work… It was yet another fun day (no surprise there). We did a lot more work on the toilets today, and have made a ton of progress on them. By the end of the season, the military camp should have about four brand new toilets. One…



Not very rice of you.

Oh me oh my! What a day, what a day. It was another glorious day here in elephant sanctuary bliss. Of course we had our ever wonderful hammock time, but the work today was also top notch. We began the day in our same groups and swapped the jobs from Monday. One group went again…



Sabay Sabay!

Happy happy! In Khmer, sabay means happy and golly gee are we happy!! It was an amazing day at the elephant sanctuary. We began he day with teaching english at a nearby school. There are over 300 students there and english lessons are so good for them. We split up into groups of three and…

Bye bye beautiful forest :(

Today was a sad, sad day as it was our last day at the elephant sanctuary. We woke up and filled up with our last full on vegetarian breakfast. In the morning we headed into the forest and gave Kamlin one last sugary treat of watermelon and sugarcane. After everyone said our final goodbye to…



You don’t know what a SMORE IS?!?!

Today was our last day of full work. We woke up at our usual time and ate breakfast. Full of veggies and coffee we split into two groups for the last time. One group headed out to a local farm to collect manure for the farm. This manure will be used in the vegetable garden we are…
