Seeing an elephant in real life, up-close and personal in this type of context is surreal.
A couple of things I have noticed during celebrations here……
1- There is no singing what-so-ever
2- There is no dancing… (what a shame!!)
3- Man and women do not really mingle other than their husband-wife scenarios
4- No public drinking (good thing!)
SO in other words, this festivals are not for the Rio de Janeiro carnival goers….
When you are the only “tourist” amongst the crowd, you actually feel like the elephant himself.
Learning the insights of Ayurvedic detoxification……. awesome.
