Terrace of the Elephants



The Terrace of the Elephants was used as a stadium for public ceremonies, tightrope acts, and acrobatic stunts. Foreign delegations would come here after meetings, enjoying performances. Decorating its wall were garudas, lions, and a parade of elephants, whose trunks resembled columns.

Wow...I hope the elephants didn't do acrobatics, ha. I am soooo dreaming of India, though we're having a hot spell (only -9 today...) but lots of snow. There's a new movie out, The Best Marigold Hotel, and I hope to see it on the FEST. It's about a group of British pensioners who move to India...hmmmm.... Google it!

Looks like a funny video. Not sure it would beat Outsourced though. You could be a pensioner here!
