More photos on Flickr from my SE Asia trip. This set includes the trip from the Thai border at Aranyaprathet to Buriram and Surin, home of the Elephant Round-Up which I last attended in 1976. It has grown a bit.

One more set from my trip, I took the train from Surin to Bangkok, then a taxi to Chanthaburi, 3 hours away. What was I thinking? Should have stayed overnight in Bangkok and taken the bus the next day. Chanthaburi is the gem exchange capitol of Thailand, near the sapphire/ruby mines. That's an uncut 30-carat ruby in her hand.
