A weekend with Elephants

So after visiting Munnar, the only thing I want to replay were those moments where I got to meet this handsome little elephant. Such gentle creatures, and ever so patient. They are probably not even aware that they are so huge, and are really playful. Actually met his entire family, saw a baby elephant too. How can anyone be as cruel as to think of poaching them, reducing their population and hurting them. Watching them in their environment, I wondered if the Ivory that they were poached for, was worth it at all. From 100 dollar a kilo in the early 90's, it is now priced at 1000 dollar a kilo, and the population has dwindled to about 10% of their population from back then. 

Such a beautiful and kind creature, want to play with him again !
