A picture is worth a thousand words!
Best friends: Pang Noi and Pang Suai.
Lom, who is just 10 years old, and her adoptive mother, Pang Tong.
Thong Dee, who has a square pink patch on her back where the chair she carried tourists in for so many years used to sit.
Pang Dow enjoying grass from the enrichment frame. Despite a broken ankle that didn’t heal properly, she was forced to work for many years before coming to BLES.
Mr. Moo, a strong 50-year-old who used to help his mahout log. He now has a better life here, and so does his mahout.
The Gossip Girls: Lotus, Pang Dow, and Wassana (in the boot that protects the injury she sustained from stepping on a land mine).
