Lucky Elephant and more...

Hiiiiiiiiiia lovely people,

I see you've been very well taken care of in the last two weeks (well a bit more) by Lilly. Since she didn't behave badly ;), I will be more than happy if she continues to post on TDP.

Well I feel very restless now that I'm back, full of positive energy and I have to report that I enjoyed my India travels so much I wish I could have stayed longer in the nice and a very hot Calangute.
I've met so many nice people, travelled up and down Goa and Karnataka, ate the most delicious food, had too many freshly squeezed juices, enjoyed Arabian sea... saw a few dolphins, fed monkeys and rode an elephant... People are very nice and hospitable and despite extreme poverty they're still smiling... lot's to learn from...
Well I wouldn't be me if I didn't break a few house rules along the way and this time I will not make an exception and will try to make a feast for your eyes because I took too many great photos not to share them with you. So my dear friends hope you don't mind?! And if you do, please bare with me 'till I get back to my old self...

Ham, real elephant for you =)

Happy Birthday Dad!

Mind!!? I think it's positively necessary to share these photos. Excellent shot that says so much about that wonderful, wonderful country. I rode an elephant twice: once in India and again in Thailand. The elephants gait makes for a jerky, unsteady kind of "stroll." Did you ride one, too?

Love it! Now, all you need to do is to take him(?) as hand luggage next time you visit London, I'm sure nobody will notice .....

(and Lilly may have pointed me to another heffalump in London, too)
