BuonDon06    When speaking of DakLak , we must talk of elephants because DakLak is the native place of elephants. Ban Don is the home of wild elephant catchers and tamers whose fame was once echoed throughout the whole of Southeast Asia.

    Elephants have become a means for the natives to make a living. Traditional elephant races also take place here. Ban Don, also called Buon Don, in Laotian " Island village," is about 45 km North West of Buon Ma Thuot.

    Here the trade of wild elephant catching and taming and has made it completely different from any other village. The Edeh, the M'nong, and the Jarai villages in the past were very prosperous. The chiefs, including Y Thu (Khun Ja Nop) , Y Ky, and others were considered as kings, ruling over large areas of land. Now in Ban Don the customs and the cultural activities are a blend of many regions, countries, and eras.

Coming to Ban Don, you can ride elephants to sightsee the jungles, learn about elephant catching and taming, and various other activities.

Dear Chinh,

 I hope you are happy and in good health…
 Of course I remember you! And I remember all those nice places we went and the conversations we had.
 How are you? I am well and writing to you from Sydney, where I am visiting friends for a couple of weeks.
 It was a pleasure meeting you and I am glad you got to be my guide in the Central Highlands, because you were very professional and always in good humor.
 I do not know when will I ever come back to the Village of Thuot’s Father, but if I do, I promise to look you up.
 By the way, if you were to find the house where I lived, maybe I would come back sooner.
 Stay in contact and I will do the same.

Best regards,

Francisco "TJ" Tejeda
