Things to Do: Wash an Elephant

Our trip to India and Nepal is getting closer and closer: it's just over a month until we go!

I'm starting to make a mental list of things I want to do, am really going to do.... We've already signed up for an elephant-back safari in this national park (it's the best way to get close to rhinos around that neck of the woods) so why not take the whole elephant thing one step further?



Number One on the List of Things to Do: I'm going to take a bath with an elephant in Chitwan Park, Nepal. Apparently I'm going to get very wet. Have a look at these people doing just that. I'm going to be just like that girl who had a bit of trouble figuring out just exactly how she was going to climb up on its back, I'm betting. :)

Absolutely amazing! I am so very happy for you that you're going on this journey, how exciting. People's lives change when they go to India, it's a very powerful place. "Thank You India" is one of my favourite songs and videos ever. Safe travels to you.

Now that looks like fun.

Of course, if all you wanted to do is get wet, you could stay in BC for November and get rained on for free.

I've heard elapahnt bathing is very good for parenting. After giving an elephant a bath, a child is no problem.

That will be so cool! You will have lots of memories, photos and good stories to share with your friends and family (and maybe some with us?!)

OOOO! PLEASE post pictures, pictures and more pictures. While I'm waiting, I'll update my own list of things to do by adding "Bathe (with) An Elephant!"

I went on an elephant trek in Laos...very prickly hair on those things...the ultimate 4x4 excursion animal...very stable on hills.
