A very surprising shot (I'm not used to see elephants walking around on the streets...) ;)

That looks like fun, but it must be harder than riding a horse. I rode a camel once, and it was like a roller coaster when he stood up.

This is really cool. did you get a chance to ride one? I saw a documentary on the elephants and their handlers. It's pretty amazing to see their relationships.

There were recently elephants on the street in Columbus! They were here for a circus. These look like hard working elephants.
