....land of my dear Sri Lankan friends who I met through the Meditation courses in Toronto/ Minden 'gypsy' camps where we sat / served ~20 years ago but such good strong memories still( there was something about that time/place that was special!!)

Talk about pressure!
As we climbed out, I kept an eye ...

One young man had a home made fishing rod complete with a water bottle turned collection plate and cardboard salmon that read "fishing for kindness". There are quite a few beggars around and they ranged from our fishing friend, to a very well kept older man who sat, legs crossed, reading a paper, to a scraggly woman sitting in the tightest squat I've ever seen, ...
