Wassana Wednesday

Wassana is free and in her new home at BLES sanctuary from yesterday !!!! Can you see her smile? 
I wrote about her here. There were some delays in getting her and we suffered through those unwanted extra days where she had to carry indifferent and ignorant tourists on a chair loaded up her back. Katherine wrote in her journal:"....and I watched in absolute horror as two well dressed, well spoken, and seemingly well educated tourists, clambered onto Wassana’s back. They were laughing and holding on to each other out of fear of falling out of the chair. Meanwhile, the mahout was directing Wassana with a hook that was longer than my leg. Wassana, gave me a long hard look and then turned to begin her trek up the mountain. It would be over an hour before she returned…" But that is all over for her now. I hope she settles well in her new home... I will write again about her. I think her smile says it all.

Happy Wassana, in her new home. If I ever saw an elephant smile, it's her, in that picture. Please do keep us updated on her progress.
