Out Of The Hills Of Sri Lanka And Back To Colombo
After the elephant adventures we attended a spirit filled conference.
Enjoyed the drama as the bats hanging in the tree on the hotel's front lawn took to the air for their night flight.
Walked all over town and bought a SriLanka elephant print skirt.
Inspected crafts of the country. Just liked the difference from India.
SriLanka was very warm so the weather was not a big difference but as we flew over the island it was green, green, green. Our part of India is a little dry. Like Southern California without the imported water. Acres and acres of palm trees. And as we drove in from the airport we enjoyed a marked difference in the orderliness of the city of Colombo. Why there is so much trash in India we have not learned, but there is a lot all over the cities that we have seen. Sometimes you can ignore it and sometimes it makes you a little weary of the disregard of the fact that cleanliness is next to Godliness.
