We had a lovely day spent with my cousin Chitra.
We spent the morning at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo, south of Bangkok. In spite of its name the place actaully has a great variety of other animal attractions. Piggy race, a crocodile show, tigers and talented elephants. We fed the camels with long beans. Feeding the tigers was done by shooting at the small cages on an overhead rope holding the meat. The meat drops down to the waiting tigers below if you hit the target on the cage. The boys were brave enough to pose with scorpions on their t-shirts.
We then had lunch at a fantastic seafood restaurant nearby at the beach. The restaurant had outdoor terraces shaded by many coconut trees and the seaside breeze was supplemented by fans tied to the coconut tree trunks. An absolutely idyllic location.
It is truly good to have a cousin living locally to show the special places.
