Tuk-Tuk Goose

December 13, 2019

Colombo, Sri Lanka, is a cool place. If you don’t know where it is and you own an iPhone, have S-i-ri Lanka it up for you.

Colombo is an extremely busy city, as Traveler Aaron John discovered. 

From dodging tuk-tuks.

To avoiding bikes while trying to cross the street...

But the craziness didn’t keep Aaron from completing his wild goose chase in search of Sri Lanka’s best fabric.

Thanks Aaron for your determination!

Here’s to you and the beautiful island country of Sri Lanka.

And to its beautiful sunrises...

(Wow, it just dawned on me...getting up that early can be a real sun of a beach)

And to the radical surfers who don’t wear shirts. “Cowabunga, dude! Sun’s out, puns out!”

And, of course, to traveler Aaron for Rupee-tedly going the extra mile to find awesome fabric.

So in the midst of life’s busyness...

Here’s to trying to keep calm and curry on… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

"Singapore is a country where old and new exist side-by-side.

From walking downtown through the streets lined with gleaming skyscrapers, to stumbling upon temples that are over a hundred years old, and to discovering a carefully preserved city block of traditional shop-fronts that date back to colonial days.
