Elephants

Have you ever wondered how hard it is to climb onto an elephant?
I find it quite tricky, since it's not something I practice on a regular basis.

These photos were taken at Chitwan National Park in Nepal, November 2008. The area is inhabited by the Tharu people who live a quiet simple life growing rice and building their houses from mud and straw. It was strange going into one of these mud huts and discovering it had electricity and a colour TV.

During the day we had fun on the elephant safari, and during the evening we sat around in the hotel gardens getting savaged by mosquitoes.

It's clearly all in the stick Chris.
Perhaps best to wait until your gout has cleared up before trying again.
