Big Elephant Blessings

DSC_3177I was fascinated and excited by the elephants in India. They are so huge and intelligent animals. A, who finds an elephant less interesting than the average boring Swedish Elk, had more fun watching me than watching the elephants.

We did of course do the touristy thing elephant riding. It was just as swaying and slow as you expect an elephant be on a warm day.

DSC_3229After riding the elephant we were encouraged to give the huge animal a little gift, and so I would receive a blessing in return. The lady elephant was supposed to give my head a soft touch with the tip of her trunk. But that is not what happened. Maybe she felt this silly tourist needed a little knock with her trunk instead? Anyway, lets just say I got an extra big blessing, shall we?
