I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

Great Stuff...keep it coming.

The weight of lies will bring you down / And follow you to every town / Cause nothin happens here

That doesn't happen there / So when you run make sure you run / To something and not away from

Cause lies don't need an aero plane / To chase you anywhere

Perhaps I should have made an elephant or animal thread. The animals alone were worth the trip. No where in the U.S. would I have been allowed to ride an elephant , especially when the handler disembarked to take photos leaving the elephant only under the control of his voice. Can't even imagine what the release form would have looked like in the states!

The funnest moments (and embarrassing at times) definitely involve animals, more specifically, primates

post-47-0-98231700-1348538365_thumb.jpg

More primates having fun, others I'm sure were embarrassed. Whoever rode on that bus knows what happened here, I'm not telling...

Ah! It tickles!

enjoying all the fun photos & videos - this Biennial was the most heavily documented, with IPS member and Nongnooch staff taking lots of photos & videos - from viewing these PalmTalk Forum postings it is beginning to look like "what happens in Thailand does NOT stay in Thailand"...
