As this was our 4th visit to Sri Lanka, we know a few locals and get invited to many houses, eating steamed para fish, drinking late into the night, we get to chat about our different countries and try to understand how it is to live in such a beautiful place.
We found that a couple of bottles of arrack, coke, and sauage scraps from hotel,(for pet dogs/cats) we were most welcomed, Sri lankan people are very friendly, and think it a honour for you to visit there homes, so if asked GO, you,ll have a great time, and lose a day or too....
Our good friend wanted us to go to temple on poya day, which flowers and incense are giving for blessing from budda, I did not take any photos of temple, as i found 10000,s of pairs of eyes on us enough to look at. Dressed in Sari we were surpised to see so many people in one place, the floor was baking in afternoon sun, the smell of urine form w/c area was awful, the heat inside temple was boiling, and the looks we got, will always be with us, go again, oh yes, we loved it.
