All the newbies were creating a racket over this on fb, a sign of the times I guess.

I drove past it yesterday as it was headed up Sereypheap. Looked fine, just a big horse, really, no idea what all the hand wringing was all about.

Doesn't the big fella stroll over from Kampot every year? Poor thing must be lonely, elephants are social animals. At the zoo they are all chained up together, thats much better for them.

I'm wondering if you checked to see if it was really the trunk end the water squirted from. It's hard to tell sometimes, as both ends of a elephant look the same.

looks to be a neat way to travel :)
fella is reclining in that last pic. But feeding it might be problematic, they do eat a lot. Pretty sure your ride would not get stolen tho.
