In Chinwan National Park and today we do a elephant ride into the jungle where we saw several deer in the trees was not able to get any good pictures of them, but did get a few pictures of a rhino cow and calf. Very rocky ride with 4 people per elephant, after our ride we got to go to the river to bath with the elephants. The first spray from the elephant was cold then not to bad as it was a hot day, then in the afternoon was off for a plunge the river very nice. Went back to hotel for some lunch an a rest before heading out for a afternoon boat ride to see the crocs, after the boat ride we went to see the elephant breeding center where they had a 2 week old baby elephant plus others of different ages. Up the next morning heading out a 4 hour trip to Lumbini for one night, this is the birth place of the Prince Siddharta Gautama the founder of the Buddhist religion. Another early morning rise and after a quick breakfast we head to the boarder to cross into India short line only 15 minutes and now in India, now we have a mini bus for a very long bus ride 10 hours to reach a our night stop in Varanasi India
