we have now discovered another way to pass time in thailand. let ourselves be locked into a cage with tigers – and it’s best when you’re unable to open the exit door, and no one stays around to open the doors just in case the tigers go nuts. that didn’t happen, the tigers going nuts part, but if it had, this might have been a much different and possibly nonexistent post.
okay, so they are baby tigers. 3 months old. and cute and magnificent. before we entered this cage i did have to sign a waiver. you know, in case one of these babies ate one of my babies. and, as it turns out, my babies are so sweet that one of the cubs couldn’t help itself and had to have a little taste.
(i tried to photo shop this so the injury would look impressively garish, but i’m just not that good.)
i didn’t get pictures of the actual mauling, but what’s surprising about that? i am the same person who didn’t get the s8 vs. the elephant action shot.
after we pet the cubs we walked up to the restaurant, because that’s the best spot to view the big tigers.
but we didn’t eat there – the kids have been asking me for weeks for khao soi. and today i decided to oblige them. so our next stop was my favorite place to get khao soi kai – which is a curry soup with chicken that is regional to chiang mai.
and now i’m home basking in the glory of being the best parent. you know since the other one went off to america – and has yet to return.
