52. Does my bum look big on this?

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.
