Bathing the Elephants in Kochi, India

January 3rd, 2010

Kochi is located in the state of Kerala, a beautiful green area with lots of palms, fruit trees and amazing lakes. We went to Kochi, or Cochin, by night train which was quite the experience. We did have our own cabin which wasn't too uncomfortable and the space was big enough to fit us two, a bed and a very undesired cockroach..Fortunately we slept the whole 12,5 hours without any shocking incidents:)

Kochi is a nice little seaside town where were able to do some sightseeing. The next day our driver took us to a river where we actually bathed the elephants! So cute!!

The elephants get a real thorough treatment and we even got to back scrub them with a coconut. After the bath we joined the elephants back to their resort where we could ride them around. These animals are so big all the shaking could easily throw us off any other second.
