Oh Wow!! You did a lot of research on Sri Lanka it seems…I had no knowledge that it was called Serendib!! Deriving serendipity from Serendib! I don’t think the word originated from there!Anyways, keep sharing knowledge!
With the war going on there and coming to finallity as confined to a tiny corner where negotiations are in order soon, I have now seen fairly extensive film and pictures of quite a few parts of it.I can’t pronounce the name in general for one thing…but know them.With nature shots being my favorites, I see it as a vast jungle and mountain setting with little civilization even being visible, and what is for the most part peaceful settings with hardly a vestige the complexity of tumultuous city life.The floura and fauna varieties are endless, and I’d say some have seen few humans and are largely curious as if the place were a large zoo and the human is the animal to be viewed.On the other hand, the beaches are fabulous, the people relaxed, and modern moves toward ultra-modern many place, and great art work abounds in the tourist places I viewed.I suggest for most informative tours for any visitor is to pull up the local chamber of commerce sites, and store this map so that you can spell the town’s names correctly.Almost every town or city has one. The sites will include so many features and free tours that even the most bored world traveler will sit up enraptured by the places few would see even if a rich tourist in that place.It beats showing up and going, "Hey, what is there worth visiting around here?"English is everywhere, but you won’t see the American face anywhere, even if on an American.They look relaxed, peaceful of a nature New York can’t duplicate anywhere on any face.Dreamy-eyed and unperturbed.Is that serendipity Sweeti?And you should see the reef life and deeper marine biologies. They are like the names of the towns, you don’t need to know how to spell them to be astounded.You want to take the whole place home with you if you are just visting…like me..cyber-visitor.Love you,David.
I always understood Serendipity to mean a fortunate accident.Never been fortunate enough to visit Sri Lanka, though went to schools with some Tamils who were very passionate about this region
the word means to find fortunate discoveries by accident so i would think it was discovered at a fortunate time by whoever found it and was the ideal place for them xx
We wouldn’t stumble across such beautiful places by chance these days…it would be by design after image searches and what not 🙂
Well! I got lost in here Sweeti san, I have no idea what so ever that sorry I can’t said muchlol!Even in Japan if an ancient time things that’s pretty much guess what people wrote about that times….I hope you ‘ll find out what you are looking for it.Big Hugs,Michiko
