  Moving an elephant down the raod in Sri Lanka
by mtncorg

Driving at night in rural Sri Lanka is not to be taken lightly. It can be hard enough during the day. At night, cows, water buffaloes, goats, dogs, people, bikes without lights, cars without lights, guerilla patrols, Army patrols can all be part of the scene. One of the biggest obstacles, however, is the elephant. On the road towards Batticaloa, there are wild elephants to be found. In this picture, a domestic elephant was being led down the road.
