Divine Retreat Center Potta, Kerala, India
I loved the crowds in India

Above: Shooting a video in India. I thought the elephant was really into it,
but at one point he spat on me. After that we were friends - from a distance.
I think its because he didn't know what kind of instrument I was playing.
It actually is my flute...I had a repairman bend it.
