Well, it landed a week ago actually and I’m currently making this post from Sri Lanka. Me and my mom have been wanting to take a trip back home for quite some time, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to do so for any meaningful stretch of time; I did’t want to just visit for a week.
I could have posted a while ago, but some technical issues and Jet Lag prevented me from doing so.
Apparently I forgot we use 220 Volt electrical connections here instead of the 115 in the U.S. and the plugs were totally different. We also needed to get Internet access which was a bit more difficult than it should have been considering I didn’t have a permanent ride and public transportation carries its own set of hiccups for Singlish (English + Singhalese shaken, not stirred) speakers.
Some things made it blatently obvious that I’m not in New York any more (besides the language and abundance of three-wheeler taxis). Namely this fellow lurking in the bathroom…
I let the fellow be after I took this shot, but then
had to remove it after being threatened with a broomstick bravely volunteered to remove it before my mom could use the shower.
I’ll post more after I recover from the culture shock and jet lag.
