As we bumped our way along the scrubby desert terrain,we were treated to some of the protected wildlife in Dasada. We encountered bleached white laughing pelicans, flamingos in solitary contemplation and boisterous at happy hour. There were deer who seemed to know we were no threat, nodding, waving and sauntering along. There were four-legged moosedeerwildabeast type things playing around, possibly vying for the affection of one of the deer. And finally some not so wild asses.
