At 8:00 AM, we reached Trivandrum 1 hour …

Alleppey to Kollam

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna


... the elephants were incredibly passive given the amount of noise and commotion (although on further inspection this was because they were being fed large bundles of grass and leaves). The centre elephant of each line was the biggest, dressed up even more grandly, and in our opinion probably King elephants, those special beasts who are so named only if they have the ability to touch the ground with 7 different parts of their body at the same time (use your imagination). ...
