Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage

Standing in awe watching the cutest baby elephant cheekily tease a tall Dutch Lady intent on patting him. He walks up to her and just as she puts her hand down, he runs away. The tall Dutch lady lopes after him looking incongruous in her floppy hat, inappropriate shoes and long dress running after an elephant in the mud…. then minutes later he stands placidly as I hesitantly touch his head… which was rough and scratchy – not nice to pat at all!!
