First blood.

Once again I made sure how much Asian and European cultures differ. We were invited to a big and hilarious feast of a little twelve-year old girl, who became a maiden. And immediately there came to my mind the sounds of unmortal hit from Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” - "Girl, you'll be a woman, soon".   more

Unawatuna - Ella - Arugam Bay - Pasicuda - Trincomali - Nilaveli

Oh, how much interesting I have been reading about the Eastern part of Sri-Lanka! During my first trip to Sri-Lanka I failed to come there and thought it was a big omission. Having settled down here for the second time and for long I categorically decided for myself – I am coming.   more

Life is beautiful!
