Elephants and monkeys

I took a scooter ride to the small elephant park that is about 8 kilometers south of where I am staying at white sands beach; they only have six adult elephants and a youngster there, and they all looked to be well cared for…….. there is no entrance fee but visitors can buy, as I did, a basket of bananas which the elephants take from your hand with their trunk’s, in  a remarkably delicate fashion.

Visitors can take a ride on the elephants for a fee, which is how the income for the upkeep of the park is generated………..I watched a few people taking rides and it was just a short saunter around in a well shaded area, so not too stressful, I imagine, for the jumbos.

Riding back from the Elephant park, I suddenly spotted this troop of monkeys playing around at the side of the road……….

Above and below………this bar on the outskirts of white sands beach, is not in a very favourable location………………so some innovative advertising is called for………..
