So, Mom and I had just left the Nehru memorial and we were on our way to the Gandhi memorial when we saw an elephant on the road. This was mom's first elephant siting in India, so we slowed down the car to take a picture. At that point the boy on top of the elephant asked if we wanted a ride. I agreed, so he stopped the elephant in the middle of the road (cars were honking behind us) and had him kneel down so I could climb up. So, I did! It was great. We were sitting on top of an elephant on top of a bunch of sugar cane. We walked down the road for some time and then he dropped me off. The elephant was so beautiful, really obedient and super sweet.
