Bright and colorful stores..smiling people..they don't have much by our standards, but in this mild climate they are able to grow much of their own food.
The gardens..they are beautiful and well kept..even the children did field duty.
These fields blend in seamlessly with the tea crops..it was a wonderful sight to see. As more tourists come to Sri Lanka and see it's beauty, I hope the working class people will be able to reap some of the economic benefits. It is rough traveling thru the congested streets and pot-holed roads..but the people and the scenery make a long lasting impression.
