Sacred Cows, Elephants and Camels – Rajasthan, India

Throughout our trip through India, we saw many animals along the way.  From sacred cows in the street to beasts of burden and everything in between.

Here are just a few of them…

    • I particularly like the one of the cows butt in the alleyway – no way were we pushing past. Whatever its speed was, was ok by us. Those things have big horns on them! Many were bulls and you don’t mess with either. 🙂
