Elephant Artists

I am declaring my blog “Time-Out Thursday” because I just feel like a break from all the horrible stories in the world. I know, I know, there are people everywhere who can’t do that, but I thought a smile would at least be. . . . . a smile, for  today.

One of the things among the thousands  I loved  in India, was the elephants.

My favorite of the girls we rode near the Amber Fort in Jaipur.

That bumpy ride, swaying side to side. . . . check that off the bucket list!

So here is the video of artist elephants in Thailand, painting a  self-portrait of herself. Whew, the elephants in India didn’t do that or we missed it!

See for yourself!   She paints better than I could do and tourists pay up to $60  for each painting. That money  helps towards the elephants’ upkeep.

Hmmm. . . . .  .I think I better do a tad more digging in  research on the net trying to discover if there is “rest of the story!”   Do pop in for a visit tomorrow. . . . . .     for elephant artists’ update. . . . . .

 

So what do you think?
