Elephant's Blessing!

Elephant's Blessing!

12/19 – Pondicherry – One day we took an auto-rickshaw into Pondicherry.  The highlight for me was the elephant's blessing!  Four years ago, when I was there with Kirsten (Chuck had been on his way to Ideal Beach to get treatment & recover from his "unknown" illness!) the elephant had been on vacation – resting at their vacation spot with other elephants.  I was so disappointed,  BUT, this time, she was back at work – BLESSING anyone that would give her some money or treats, like a banana  down her trunk!  SO… we all lined up to be blessed!  Her trunk felt so heavy, but soft too!
