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".

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.
All of us have a problem of chauvinism, this is such a nation, VIGOROUS, MIGHTY, DEFEATED BY NOONE... an so on and so after by the text of the song*, but some people sometimes have a click in their heads and they start thinking that may be except of us there is somebody else in the Universe?
As is the saying of my father-in-law, the former major of militia, “you want to know a person – you need to fuddle him”. Today was the second time we were boozing together with the Lankans. From the first go, two days ago, there was an idea to put pen to paper, but likely emotions was not enough, and today the vessel is overflowing and I will splash it out at you.
Bad luck – we have been getting to Unawatuna almost for 8 hours. We got stuck in a big traffic jam in Colombo and it took us 3 hours to get out of the city. But I will freely confess that after two-month longing for Lanka, it was quite a pleasure to drive through the city overfull with energy of the Lankans.
