Week 269 Saturday 10th until Friday 16thAugust 2019.


Sri Lanka 2019 special Sri Lanka 2019 Special.

From 4th until 11th Aug, my sisters and i were in Sri Lanka. SAZ and Hel had been a few times over recent years, but this was my first visit for 32 years! While there we saw relatives and the sites. Plus, close encounters with beautiful animals, some more exotic than others.


“Drinking and flying, so much fun”.

One of the first things i did when i arrived home was to dump all the pictures from the various cameras I took with me onto the computer. This was when i discovered that during the week i had taken around 2500 pictures! Due to being broke after the trip, i am sadly unable to hire The O2, The Royal Albert Hall or even Thornton Heath’s Darby And Joan Hall to show you them. So instead this week’s blog is basically lots of pics (not all 2500, don’t worry) which hopefully will give you a flavour of the trip.


“With cuz Jezzer”.

Thanks in no particular order to SAZ, Hel, Jezzer (Jeremy), Yaan and Andrea (and girls), Bevo and Lal and Uncle Ellis. Plus thanks to Nishantha and Imran for helping to get us around from location to location.


“With Bevo, Lal, Yaan and Jezzer”.
