I feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to spend the day at the Elephant Nature Park just outside of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.
There is no elephant trekking. No elephants paint or play soccer or even dunk basketballs.
The elephants stand where they'd like.
They tell each other secrets.
They swim in the river.
They stick together.
They play like big children.
They take in the scenery.
They cool off with a nice bath.
They will forever rest their tired backs and broken spirits at the park.
