The Tiger Temple was established by local monks who care for abandoned wild animals. Tum told us it had gotten very tourist-y and it has, but still, I got to pet a tiger! The fur was oily and not at all soft and fluffy like I expected. Nancy, running behind a tiger in the hopes of getting to pet it, got peed on instead. Call it a wilderness experience if you like.
Getting a "massage" from an elephant caused me to question my sanity!
