... down the steep hill to get to the river. This is easier said than done as first you have to get on the elephant whilst he is standing, not the most graceful task! Hania sat on his neck and I was about half way down his back, this was an uncomfortable place as they have a very sharp back bone that smacks directly in a very delicate place on the human body (especialy for men), this became even more difficult when he reached the steepest part of the hill, Hania thought she would ...
