After the bath

After the bath
My previous series showed the elephant being given a wash and the attendant then jumping off. Which left the elephant in the river alone! With the bathing over, it's time for this well trained elephant to get out. See the images below (also in PiPs). The position shown on the map is approximate to the Bolaven Plateau in southern Laos.

SMALL IGP8085-1I found this remarkable - it picks up the rope so it didn't become a problem.

Wie bei den kleinen Kindern. Wenn sie in der Wanne die Prozedur des Waschens und des Haare waschens erst einmal überstanden haben, wollen sie immer noch planschen - meistens bis das Badezimmer unter Wasser steht!

What a show! Marvelous and interesting to see...gosh that must have been fun for you. Laos? WOW!! That must have been an incredible trip. We'd love to visit Asia at some point but these days we're happy just to embrace the loveliness of our state in relative safety. You went in 2011, how awesome. Isn't it great that we have so many pictures to dig into and share from our past adventures? You sure have me thinking about Asia though. Some day...I hope!

The second chapter of the story! Thank you, George. I was left a bit hanging about the elephant being left to fend for itself in the swift river current ...
