Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

Seen in Sri Lanka today



A metal jeep playing ice cream truck music with a sign that said "CAPTAIN TASTY TREATS."

A gigantic iguana crossing the road.

Water buffalo, doing same.

Cows, doing same.

Awesome ruins and stupas and temples and Bodhi trees.

The glorious inside of a shower at the end of today, because wow it is hot and sticky here. I had the "why are you so sweaty" line from Napoleon Dynamite stuck in my head all day, as a sort of rhetorical question.

The worst age to travel with kids
