Rinding at Mor Sing Tho and a Walk To Nong Pak Chee Wildlife Observervation Tower. ขี่จักรยานมอสิงห์โตและเที่ยวหนองผักชีกับหมอปรีชา

Rinding at Mor Sing Tho and a walk to Naong Pak Chee wildlife observation tower is my collection of pictures of a good time that, I, my son and Dr. Preecha Rugpolmaung, our beloved doctor of medicine, had together. Dr. Preecha helped us many times to overcome our illness. The most important treatments he did for us were curing my wife's back and my mother's hand.

We went to Khao Yai together a few times because Dr. Preecha also like biking and wildlife observation. He is still very active in biking and birding today , much more active than me (May,2005).

This collection also contains some memorable pictures about wildpigs and some hornbills we found up there. Those wildpigs which lost their animal instinct and turned to rely on food from tourists at the National Park's canteen , garbages, were all now extincted because of infection with some unknown diseases suspected as coming from tourists.

You see those wildpigs which lost its dignity as a wild animal which were the cause of a very sad story for them.

We stayed in our tent at Pha Gloay Mai (Orchid stone) a night before we rode. My son and me were sitting around the filre. For me, a cup of coffee at the fire near our tent tasted better than at Starbuck or anywhere else.

A closed up view of this hornbill from one of my shots shows that it was carrying a piece of dry grass, so I believed it was building its nest.
