Today I spent the day at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, just outside Chiang Mai, and finally got to be around these majestic creatures I have loved all my life.
The 8 elephants that live in this jungle have all been rescued from tourist attractions where they have been ridden by ignorant foreigners and have been worked way past the point of exhaustion.
It was absolutely incredible to be able to stand so close to these beautiful animals, to touch them, to feed them, to spend time.
It shouldn't be a surprise that I cried within 0.5 seconds of arriving.
What a beautiful experience.
If only all animals could be free.
