For those without the power to ascend Phnom Bakheng, elephants are at their service. Though I am sure it must be quite an experience, I don't think it's right for humans to "ride" elephants. Instead I took a few pictures of these beautiful creatures. Photo taken in December 2016.
Cool...but I do feel bad for the elephants.ReplyDelete

They are beautiful creatures. I was moved by your statement...then thought...horses are majestic creatures, but we ride them. Perhaps another way to look at it, in a world where wild creatures have lost their habitat, maybe having a job and a loving human to care for them is a reasonable life. Best to see the good side of things. :)ReplyDelete
I completely agree with what you said. These amazing animals are more majestic and regal, than a human can ever be. Yet, we shackle them, make them preform for us, and ride them. Whenever humans and wild animals interact, the animal suffers for it.ReplyDelete
I happened to notice you hadn't been by lately. I hope all is well with you. -MacReplyDelete
