One night in the jungle
In 2008 my family and I went on a trip through China over Christmas. One place I especially remember was when we spent one night in south of Yunnan in a tree house in a national park with wild elephants.
The house was high up in a tree over a small river. The guides told us that the wild elephants usually came to this spot on the river in the early morning to drink water.
It was very dark in the night. In the middle of the night we heard a sound and we woke up, ran outside and looked down on the river, but nothing. It was probably just apes or dogs from the villages nearby.
In the morning we didn’t have any breakfast beside some bananas. We also met some monkeys but no elephants.
Even if we never saw any elephants it was a great adventure.
