Coorg: Dubare Elephant Camp VI

We had signed up to participate in washing the elephants, and we did two at a turn, wading into the warm water, mud squishing between our toes, and scrubbing the coarse, wrinkly hides of the elephants, somewhat like worker bees buzzing around their queen. This was the highlight of the trip. My friend was even more excited than I was, having had a lifelong dream of getting this close to an elephant.
