HotelChatter: Four Seasons Golden Triangle's Elephant Wrangler

For Day 2 in my HotelChatter series on More Cool Hotel Jobs, we travel all the way to the far reaches of Thailand's Golden Triangle (which came up in my Glamping series last year) to chat with Khun Wee, the Elephant Camp Coordinator who takes care of the resort's pack of pachyderms and teaches guests how to guide them through the jungle treks through former drug-runner territory.

Not only that, but apparently the dude plays polo on them as well. Awesome, right? How fun would it be to work with elephants for a living, and at a hotel that rescues them from a fate hauling logs or performing for crowds in the big cities? Just goes to show, you can do something totally cool for a living, while also doing good.
