Well folks, I seem to be really bombing with this whole blogging business lately. It's been a whole month since my last post and though I could say that I don't know where all that time went, in all honesty, I just really went into a state of blahness after our youngest son returned to college on January 20th. A few other things also happened that left me feeling like I didn't want to do much at all; I wasn't walking enough and was eating a whole lot more than I should.
I might still be feeling that way if we hadn't taken our recent annual trip to Sri Lanka. We left Kuwait the night of February 21st and arrived to Colombo early morning of the 22nd. After a 4 hour drive, we made it to Kandy where we stayed for two days.

I didn't sleep on the plane at all (instead I watched two movies: Victoria and Abdul which was good and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri which was even better) so was feeling rather out of it the first day.

We still managed a couple of long walks around town.
And around the lake.
For locals, monkeys are an every day sighting, but for visitors it is always such an exciting experience seeing them up close, roaming free as they should be.
We took a tuk-tuk back up the hill to our hotel.
And after freshening up and having dinner, we were ready to call it an early night.
