Riding On An Elephant's Back WIth A Digital Camera In Hand

Just came back from Sri Lanka. (The war is over! Yippee!) I hit a bookstore, a tea factory, an elephant sanctuary, a restaurant on the edge of a cliff, a gem museum, an ayurvedic herb garden, and finally, the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy!

It was sort of expensive to ride an elephant for 30 minutes. This is because the sanctuary (which tends to take in older elephants whose owners can't afford their care) is also a hospital with a mobile veterinary unit.
