City Elephants

elephant_in_loei.jpgI took this picture of an elephant in Loei.� We were eating dinner at a restaurant when a guy rode an elephant up to the entrance of the restaurant.� Some kids ran up to the elephant and paid the owner 20 baht�to feed the elephant some bananas.��I've seen people selling bananas for their elephants�in Khon Kaen and Kanchunaburi as well.��Most people�agree that this practice is bad for the elephants.� If the weather is hot, the pavement can hurt their feet.� People also say that people who can't afford to feed their elephants shouldn't have elephants.� I've never fed an elephant, but I like seeing them on the�streets!
