Today we did what you do in Sri Lanka. We went to an elephant orphanage, we rode on the back of one through the jungle and down a river bed, and we dodged the men hawking t shirts with an elephant’s bum on the front. Does someone actually buy these tshirt? I guess they must.
I have a lot of time for an elephant. They’re so exceptionally big and they seem so, I don’t know, so zen.
Still haven’t ridden a horse, but I’ve clamped my strong Southern thighs quite firmly onto the back on more than one elephant, a couple of camels, a donkey… oh god, I’d better stop there.
Giddy up cowboy.
