I'd love to tell you I saw this every day, but that would be a stretch. I've seen elephants several times, but this is the first time I've seen one walking along a public street. This is in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. You can see the elephant's handler to the left, in the elephant's shadow. I think this is the elephant from Wat Phnom, where they sell rides up the hill on its back.
