Oh mother of life!! Story within!!

Hello my friend’s one and all; at last I have a little free time.
I have my hands full at the moment, but not all is boring slog.
One of the exciting events is that I am involved in a project with Asian Elephants, (Elephas maximus)
The elephants I am refereeing to are located at the Royal Elephant Kraal in Ayutthaya Thailand.
It is named Elephantstay, volunteers from around the world pop in to help these devoted folks who are working to save this endangered species.
It is a total no profitable organisation.
Here is a link for those interested: -
Do pop in and enjoy, these amazing animals, the largest land animal.
Over the time that I have been there, I have observed these huge animals and the intelligence they have.
I am busy writing a story and when it’s finished, if you are interested, I will pop it on FC.
I will also upload a collection of the amazing animals.
Some are used to taxi tourists about, some are used to load and carry food for the other elephants.
Some are even artists and paint some amazing art work.
A number of them have been rescued and retired here were the wonderful caring folk take care of.
The photo I am uploading tonight is the most touching photo I have ever taken.
Stay tuned for a lot more on these Elephant, there are 90 adults and a large nursery of young.
I have fallen in love with a very young lady; she turned 1 year old on the day after my birth day.
I call her walkabout.
Photos and information on her later.
Take care my friends and bless you all!!

Walkabout John, Ayutthaya Thailand.
