Today I have many views of elephants in India and also an elephant on my first card from Thailand!

The cards from India come from Georgy, who has been sending me many beautiful cards and stamps.

Some of the elephants in Georgy’s home state of Kerala are trained to do work for the people. Elephants are considered sacred and carry deities for temple festivals.
