Living with the Elephants, Chang chang chang…

Being in Thailand Elephants seem to play a large part in my life, the Thai word for elephant is Chang. I drink far to much Chang beer, like to drool over the Chang girls, and live next to Wat Lam Chang. Even my friend in China has named herself Chang; though in Chinese it is the name of a ” mythical woman on the moon”.

Now it’s nice to look out of your window and view a temple.

However after a night out drinking the Chang and watching the football – which finishes quite late due to time differences – there are a few little drawbacks. Such as getting an early morning wake up call:

And on special occasions, which nearly always correspond to me having a late night out I get woken up by some Wat music. Which is pretty cool, but not to great after about two hours sleep.
