Ride an elephant! ! It's really cold again today. It is said that it will snow from now on... Although Dimbula is closed, there was a tea class "S-Class of the Tea and Food Research Department" in the morning. We just finished. Many auditing students other than S class also came. I'm glad you came from Kobe too. ～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～～ Sri Lanka Report One of the most popular is the experience of riding an elephant. Sri Lankan elephants are Indian elephants, but when you ride them, they are much taller than horses. In addition, it sways from side to side as it walks smoothly. I have a big back, so I have to spread my legs wide and it's not very stable, so it's a scary experience. However, everyone is really curious and will definitely ride. Usually, the first step is a scream of "Kyaaaa!". . . . But it's too late, I'll just have to hang on until I get where I want to go and come back. Elephants are very important animals in Sri Lanka. In August, they hold a parade carrying Buddha's teeth, and they used to knock down trees and move rocks in the jungle to create tea gardens. Come to think of it, I also use an elephant as my shop mark in Dimbula. . . . .
