The city is no home for elephants, right?


If things go as promised by the new Bangkok governor, you won't see elephants roaming the city any more. But they won't disappear immediately. M.R. Sukhumbhand Baripat says it will take two years before all the estimated 200 "city pachyderms" can find permanent homes outside the capital.

It's still a mystery to me as to why it takes such a long time to solve such a longstanding problem.
