    I love this post so much! Several years ago, my husband and I went to Thailand and I am ashamed to admit that we went to an elephant sanctuary where we spent most of the days cleaning the animals and learning about their habits, but the very end we rode them. They made it seem like the elephants didn’t mind because it was bare back and without a wooden “seat” type of apparatus on their backs. When we got home and I did more research, I was horrified. I’ve tried to be more mindful of the choices we make with animal encounters. Thank you for sharing this!
