Rana’s Rescue: Elephant Pit Stop

This is what an elephant pit stop looks like. .  And it’s your Portuguese lesson for the afternoon. Scott is busy trying to feed himself before the team needs to leave. While most of the team went to the restaurant next door, Scott stayed with Rana to clean up, refill her water and hang out with her under the cover of a neighboring garage.

I finally spoke to him and he said Rana did great last night. That by the time they stopped at 3 am, she was already napping. He opened up to offer her water and she was leaning on the wall, eyes closed, trunk on the floor, breathing deeply. She woke up for a minute, took a few bites and went back to sleep. At 6:30 she was bright eyed and ready to go. She has been eating the whole way and drank a good amount of water this afternoon. Everything about her demeanor and behavior is stellar. We will know more at the end of the day today as far as schedule goes, or at least that is what I am told. 

One of us will be back later tonight to let you know how things are going.
Thanks to everyone who made Rana’s rescue possible, we couldn’t do it without you.

    I maintain that she senses the great vibes, feels safe and trusts Scott and the others. I think she knows good things are coming.. not sure what, but this is more excitement than she’s had in a long while!
    Thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, and thank you Rana for being a stellar and top class lady about it all. What a brave and beautiful girl!
