      Today was a Poya Day, they have one every full moon, it is a national holiday. No one can sell alcohol, oh dear! We were up at 4am, this was the day we were to have a morning (early morning) safari in Yala National Park. Now I am very sceptical about seeing such advertised animals as Leopards, the blurb even reminds us that they are very rarely seen. I actually wonder if there are any!

      ... I could watching the two kids in the pool. Soon Six o clock rolled around and the sun sets are supposed to be amazing!, so we waited until 6:20 when the sun went behind the cloud bank and left us with little sunset. To tell the truth it reminded me of when the sun went behind the cloud bank or fog bank during sunsets in Brookings. tomorrow we are off to another adventure!! ...

      ... Then we went to the longest Lord Buddha statue in South Asia & Ashika (volunteer programme coordinator) told us all about Buddhism.

      On the Monday morning myself, Josie, Elsie, Simi, Sahiba & another coordinator, Nalaka, went on a river cruise. It was so fun! We held a monkey that some guy keeps as a pet, went to an island of cinnamon trees where they make cinnamon sticks & oil, saw another Buddhist temple & finally had our feet ...
