Elephant ride in Chitwan

We just got back from an elephant ride through the Chitwan National Park. We saw a rhino who was wounded in a recent fight, several deer, and some cool birds (egrets, grey heron, eagle). We then enjoyed Nepali tea while watching some elephants bathe. We were also able to interview the mahaut -- the elephant driver -- and learned his son is in Malaysia working and remits to his wife here in Chitwan.
