Riding my elephant
With my limited vocabulary I have no way of describing the day I've had today. Sometimes life holds moments which are so precious and perfect that they are completely inexpressable with words.
Before we came to Thailand I was more than aware of the way some elephants are used here and not just here, other countries too, where so many animals are subjected to a life of misery and cruelty. I've wanted to ride an elephant for the longest time and I did, in India, but it was a brief encounter, which only served to heighten the feeling that I wanted to ride one for longer.
