On the way from Luang Namtha coming back to Luang Prabang we drove past two working elephants. Yes, Laos still has elephants that are used for work. These guys were either trimming trees or getting something from the top by the side of the road. As a lover of elephants I was ecstatic to drive by them. One day I even plan to take a mahout class here, but that may be a bit away time wise.
