Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

Elephant Art


The trainers told us that the elephants were going to create artistic paintings. We expected several random brush strokes. We watched in amazement as the elephants picked up the brushes that the trainers dipped in selected paints and the three different elephants independently created an artistic drawing. We went up to purchase one of the paintings and all had sold within a matter of seconds as indicated by the "reserved" sign.

That is amazing! It makes you wonder just how much we could communicate with animals... I hope they take good care of the elephants...
