Riding the Elephant

Here is a brief video of the ride. I now understand why people used those little chairs on top of elephants.  The elephants are very wide.  The mahuts sit ride behind the ears. That would be a bit easier.

I’m glad these elephants have a safe home here in the sanctuary, but it doesn’t look like a fun life, not with the chains around their necks and the chains around their back legs.  However, it is better than a life on the streets. At least here they are well fed and have a river to bathe in.
