|We were the first (OK, the only...)|
ones in our group to volunteer for
the elephant ride up to the Amber
Palace in Jaipur. Asian elephants
are a little smaller than their
African cousins, but still strong!
|Our tour group for India - colorful in more ways than one!|
|We tried on the traditional turban and|
sari, to see what it felt like to be the
Maharaja and Maharani (king and queen).
In India, red is the color of weddings,
symbolizing purity, beauty and fertility.
