    so great to see the first of hopefully many from the old country! The last time i was there in 2003, i went to the same Hindu temple in Chilaw and stayed with Shirly Bappa and your aunt in their home! It brings back some very fond memories – i hope you’ve visited the nature reserve and taken a boat out!

    anxiously awaiting more pics!
