Round, firm and a little moist, we started our time together picking up precious golden nuggets. From the moment you arrived to the moment of your departure, your energy and laughter and spirit impressed us. The hours we spent toiling in the field at EVT will be fondly remembered and appreciated by the elephants. Leeches, mosquitos and other unidentified flying insects proved to be a challenge for many but none to great for any of you.
Our trip took us into the Thailand hills, overlooking beautiful scenery, and gave us all the opportunity to cook our own Thai barbecue as the sun set. The early morning hike was definitely a character building experience but thankfully, stepping into Laos made it worth it.
The last week was spent playing with kids and giving endless autographs to your endearing fans. House dance parties and bracelet making became part of your nightly rituals.
We were impressed with your enthusiasm and commitment to reflecting on all of your experiences and maintaining positivity for the full two weeks. We wish you all the luck on your journeys to come. Fly eagles fly.
