Last weekend we visited a local Renaissance Faire and for the first time took an elephant ride. I can't recall if I've ever been on one before, perhaps when I was little. I have to say that elephants are very wide and not as comfortable to ride as one might think!
Only two of my children wanted to ride, the two little girls on the back are not my children. Riding reminded me of two different books, any guesses which ones?
Not too hard to figure out the titles, Water for Elephants and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. In the movie version of Ya-Ya sisterhood the character rides on a plane, but in the book the ride she really wants to take is on an elephant. This was a fun memory of a fun day!
