2014-03-20: 10 days ago I went with Chan, our research guy and Hier, our vet, to help lift up an elephant called Gee Chan, in a village called Pulong. 5 days before she had arrived she had been carrying tourists on her back to the village waterfall, she was tired, thin and her foot hurt from a bad infection.
