The first days in Sri LAnka

Saterday morning 12 th december we were all packed and ready to fly.
First we had to fly to Heathrow, cos  there are no direct flights to Colombo from Brussels.
Sunday morning we arrived in Sri LAnka and ready for 15 days of sun and friendly ppl.
I had to see the sea  first. So here  the first pic of that.
 
Fishermen showing their catch….food for the family.
 
 
and the ladies on the beach  try to sell colourfull dresses.
so im a green  and black one richer now..hihi
 
Tuesday we drove with Suresh and Surendra to Badulla.The school we wanted to visit was in the high mountains.
Chamaree her native village  It took around 6 hrs to get there. Next time we need 4 wheel drive car.thats a fact..I hope that Surendra’s car is not that damaged.
We arrived at the school Kids  were already waiting for us.
it was very emotional for Etienne and me. 
Principal, teachers  and  dance teacher and of course Cha  UR DAD
He is a wonderful man. He translated in Sinhala.
Flowers for us…hmmm…it was overwhelming.
The kandy drums invited us to come inside the school.
I love the music. Really its awesome
 
The kids danced  and sang for us..I was suprised   cos i did not expected so
much attention.
 
After the donation we shared tea…
 
And the most important pic…The kids
Tx to all the ppl who where there to share these special moments.
After that  we visited also my best friends family…Sorry  Cha..we missed u..
And the Nickies are cute  lol.
