About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Back to MEF

The few readers I have left on this blog may recognize the folks in this picture. In 2006 I volunteered at Millennium Elephant Foundation (MEF) in Kegalle, Sri Lanka for one month. It was one of the coolest experiences I ever had. The lady in the photo is Rani, whom I worked with back then. The mahout (caretaker) with me is Chandana. He still has the photo I sent him after my stint. A couple weeks ago, after seven long years away, I was able to return to MEF. Happy to report both are doing well. She took me down to the river where we gave each other baths. I'll be sending these pix onwards to Chandana too. I shouldn't wait seven years to go back again.
