The second day was a big day for the Chang(e) Caravan project. In the morning, we marched from the entrance of Ancient Siam to the ’Bench of Public Appeals’. Before the long march, a small ceremonial activity was done with one of the elephants, Tong Dang, along with his mahout, to pay respect to the holy figures located in the entrance of Ancient Siam.

Isa (Wiriya) is our cheerfully tireless media officer in the Bangkok office. Here she’s going beyond duty to help distribute the brochures which contain the petition we’re running for the Chang[e] Caravan.
The people we’ve met along the way have been all too happy to support our Caravan. We’ve passed houses, stores and establishments – communities – who have given us and the elephants water, corn, sugar cane, candies and juice, and a place to rest our weary feet.

You’d never guess, but Tui is also our IT guy here in the Greenpeace Bangkok office.
Tui has been capturing all the beautiful moments from the Caravan and we’ll miss him when he has to return to Bangkok and go back being the techie…..
