"The only difference between a madman and myself is that I am not mad," Salvador Dali once said. A rare #artist who knew fame and fortune in his lifetime, #Dali opened his own museum 15 years before his death in 1989. Now the genius lies beneath the theatre stage/museum atrium and many of the million visitors each year are unaware of just who they might be standing over #inCostaBrava#figueres#spain
There is definitely no replacing the wild but this place is probably the closest these orphaned elephants can get to. We had heard mixed reviews about the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage, which sparked a curiosity to see it for ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised to see no chains and cages, but instead, witnessed this group of elephants from the orphanage being left to do their own thing in the nearby river and just feel what they would in the jungle.
