I'm at an Elephant Nature Park in Thailand learning about & chilling with elephants. This is a rescue for abused & injured animals. Not a spot for tourists to ride these magnificent animals, but still think that'd be fun, yet never will do it. Rent a scooter instead.
  1. They are delicate, gentle & sensitive, like giant dirty Sam Smiths

  5. Sweet & gentle but possess great power if you piss them off. Like that teacher you liked in school until one day all these annoying kids became too much for them
