202 Cat and the Elephant

440-elephant-rideCat had never been on an elephant. It is a rather slow moving adventure but definitely worth doing at least once in a lifetime. Again, rather touristic but still, an elephant ride.

You mount from a tower, that’s how large these pachyderms are. It’s quite uncomfortable but you endure for the sake of the adventure. So much animal, so much power and so controlled by such a small man. Not that our Mahout was small but we all are when compared to theĀ beast.

Our thanks to the professional photographer that snapped this shot. Impossible to do from way up onĀ  the beast’s back.
