Our other catch up video from yesterday is when we opened the gate between Mara and Rana. This was about an hour after the first incidence of them touching through the fence. After that, they walked away a bit and took a short standing nap. When they woke, they got back together at the fence, looked much more comfortable from the start, so we opened up.
There’s not much explanation needed with this one. But make sure to check out Mara’s giant cheesy grin at the very end of the video. For those who wonder if you can really see when an elephant smiles, that should answer your question. 🙂

a wonderful meeting of soul sisters. Friends for ever now. And to think only a week ago, Mara was on the road not knowing what lay next. Such a joy to watch.

How wonderful to see. They really do seem like they are familiar with each other. That’s a gift.

Wonderful, still can’t get my head around how lucky they are to have found a friend, and Rana been looking for so long. It great to see how they touch and smell and how blissfully happy they seem.
