What I Learned on my Sri Lanka Vacation

           1.     It can take 6 hours to drive 200km
2.    Spiders grow to the size of dinner plates (we saw a bigger one than this but it wouldn't fit on this page! 
  Swear to God!

  1. 3 The internet is not to be taken for granted

4.      Frogs and geckos are cute compared to spiders, bats, centipedes and flying cockroaches

     5.      If you sit still long enough someone will offer you exactly what you need, even if you
            don't know exactly what that is.


    6.   If you sit still for too long you will have something crawl on you
   7.   The moment to make sure there is a flashlight and candles in the house is at least 5 minutes before the power goes out       

                    8.   When a gorgeous young man invites you to party,  
                                      you may be the only invited guest

    9.   If a guide offers to show you new construction at a 2000 year old site 
                         there might be something fishy.

1 10. It feels good to be taken care of.


  1. Once again your life lessons are a guide for all of us.

    Personally, I'm going to work on that precarious balance between #5 and #6. I think this also happens beyond Sri Lanka .


Waiting to hear from you!
