Cleaning your elephant

Cleaning your elephant
Elephant cleaning is one of those jobs needing to be done from time to time. This elephant was being cleaned in the river near our guest house. As you will see, the procedure is to add some sandy mud, then rub with one of your thongs (flip-flop to some of you).

The next steps are in the PiPs and also below (I've worked out that PiPs are not visible on mobile phones - mine at least).

The next step is to get the elephant to put its head under water to wash off the cleaning mud.

When you finish washing, it's time to skip off again.

Fabulous series George. I get in enough mess cleaning the car!
I don't see PiP's on my phone either. That's why I also add them below the main picture and if anyone wants a closer look, the PiP is there for computer users.

Take care and have a good new week ahead.
