I have a close friend named Zoe, whose parents work for the Foreign Service. She was born in Seattle, then moved to Peru, then Mexico, and now she lives in Sri Lanka, an island off the south coast of India.
We took a one-hour flight to Sri Lanka, and drove to my friend's house in Colombo. We stayed in their house for a few nights, then they rented a bus to take us to a hotel called Kalu's Hideaway, owned by a famous cricket player who we got to meet in person!
One day Zoe, her two siblings, Ciara and Jude, my mom, dad, and I went to a rehabilitation center for baby elephants. They take small elephants who have no parents and supply them with milk and a safe place to be until they are old enough to return to the wild. It was really fun seeing baby elephants drink milk from a bottle!!!
Later that day everyone decided to go on a safari so two convertible-top Jeeps came and the safari began.
We saw lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of elephants!
After we spent a few days at that hotel, we took the same bus to another hotel called the Eden Resort, which has the biggest swimming pool I've ever seen!
