    What a rush! I'd really enjoy seeing some pictures when you get the chance.
    Thanks for the great report!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I think the elephants are the critters I am most concerned with. However, the last camp I was In had a pet elephant with a dog that rode on her back. I did feed it reluctantly. Elephant Dog.jpg

    Sounds like wall to wall action - can still sense the excitement through your report

    Very well done - especially considering English is not your first language

    One of the great things about night hunting and firing a large bore rifle filled with 100 something grains of powder :)

    Enclosing a picture of what used to be a very nice cornfield. Some of the villages are hit very hard by the crop-raiders. MEMO0005.JPG
