Arriving at the Baan Chang Elephant Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand was a dream come true. I was a bit scared as I walked up to greet all of the elephants, but in my head, I wanted to run and squeeze their trunks as if they were puppies. Not only are they huge and weighed a ton, they had the most playful energy, the same energy dogs have when they want to jump and lick your face. Flapping their ears, swaying their trunks, and wagging their tails, all for the sugar cane and bananas I had piled in my hands.
