It is just an Elephant Stampede Drill

Do you see any stampeding elephants?

My 3 week adventure to India has final come to an end.  It’s been a bit bumpy for the later portion, but overall, still memorable.  During my last week, I visited schools in cooler and more mountainous areas.  The views were absolutely gorgeous.  While I was chatting with a staff member at a school, she informed me that they have to perform Elephant Stampede Drills every now and then because elephants live in the neighboring mountains and sometimes get on campus!  I told her that I would volunteer for that team.  The Midwest and our Tornado and Fire Drills just can’t compete with that level of adventure!

 

 

School Lunch - not quite what they serve on the plane, but tasty!

I grew up as a pilot’s daughter and have always loved flying and airports.  I have to say that this trip to India has made me want to take a short break from flying.  My flights home were delayed and I ended up getting home a day later.  What was absolutely amazing was 1 of my 3 flights was upgraded to Business Class!  I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go back to Economy again :-) . It will be hard to go back to a chair that doesn’t fully recline and only a 1 course meal.
