We realize it has been a little bit since Rana Bug graced our page, so here she is. And yes, that is the actual lighting at dinner. The tree also only has blossoms for a couple of days. A stunning yet fleeting moment. She’s a beauty.
Both of the elephant transport crates have undergone a sanitary cleaning (required for international transport) and a paint job (required by my very detail-oriented husband). They were supposed to be the same color as they had been, but somehow the mauve container is even pinker now.
The decals with supporters names, also arrived from the printer today as well. Those will need to go on, and then Ramba’s container will need to leave shortly after. For international travel, we have to inventory, weigh, and put a price on every item that goes in the crates. That includes tools needed, straps for food, water containers, the works. We live in the land of paperwork right now. But……we just keep getting closer.
We’re also getting closer to the goal for Ramba’s flight. We are now at 83%. And while there is still a ton of work to get done, after all of these years, it’s starting to feel more real. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of giving Ramba the future every elephant deserves.
