... love a good turtle egg omelet. Nowadays, theses species are endangered so we decide to visit a hatchery to give a donation and see how we can help.
We come out with mixed feelings about the whole experience. Sure, the locals are trying to help but everything is sort of done the wrong way. Ideally, these projects should be ran mostly by volunteers, who maybe can benefit from free lodging and food while they work at the project. This normally attracts ...
We went on a wee trek through the Sri Lankan rainforest today, it was the best day ever! We walked about 3 and a half miles, up waterfalls, through bat caves, it was doss!
