The elephants did their yearly walk down 34th street on Tuesday night, at approximately 12:30. CJ and I stationed ourselves at the corner of 34th and Broadway to watch. We had to wait a while (elephant timing being an imprecise science), but the weather was nice, and the circus kindly sent teaser trucks/trailers ahead to get us psyched up. There is at least one blurry photo of me in front of a truck. The elephants finally trudged by, trunk-in-tails, surrounded by circus employees holding a rope to cordon them off, followed by horses, and teeny Shetland ponies. All-in-all it was super-cutie.
Me and CJ in front of the elephants. Sort of. It wasn't really snowing.
Also, for the record, I am fairly uninterested in hearing from animal rights' activists about how badly the elephants are mistreated. As CJ said "but look at them smiling! How could they be unhappy?"
