So after we painted our elephants, we walked them over to a grassy area with long hoses and washed them down. The elephants took turns drinking from the hose and splashing themselves with the water from their trunk. We scrubbed a little bit and they the handlers allowed us to sit on top of the elephants. Little did we know that we were about to get washed ourselves. They said,” Make sure you leave all your electronics with us”. Uh-oh, that could have been the tell-tale sign. Good thing I brought a change of clothes.
We walked over to another grassy spot and got drenched. The handlers let the elephants fill their trunks with water and splash us. It was cold, wet, and amazing. They got us pretty good. We couldn’t stop smiling.
