    ANYWAY, THE WELCOME WAS CERTAINLY ROYAL AND THE RULING BEAUTY QUEEN HAD GREAT DIFFICULTY IN REACHING HER FIRST OBJECTIVE ON HER RETURN HOME. DRIVING AT SNAIL'S PACE, HER CAR MANAGED TO EVENTUALLY REACH THE TOWN HALL WHERE THE MAYOR PRESENTED HER WITH A CARVED WOOD ELEPHANT - A GESTURE IN THAILAND WHICH PROPOSES GOOD LUCK.
