Sri Lankan and Indian Traditional Foods
Shermila and her family are absolutely wonderful! We were able to arrange her husband to pick us up from our hotel and take us to their home. The whole family was welcoming and we had a lovely evening. First, we spent some time chatting about Sri Lanka and our experiences there. Then came the dinner - wow! Shermila prepared us a LARGE traditional Sri Lankan meal, which she catered to our liking from our messages before our arrival (read: not too much spice!). Everything was absolutely delicious. We especially liked the potatoes and dhal. The pleasant conversation continued through dinner and then - when we were too full to move - came dessert! The curd with honey was one of the most tasty things I had during my trip in Sri Lanka. After some pictures, more conversation, and goodbyes - we were driven back to our hotel. We were honored to be their first American guests in their home and loved everything! Thank you so much!

Net fishing in the countryside
Etienne has a passion for fishing and it shone through the afternoon we spent together. He speaks fluent Khmer and so was able to to talk to both locals and friends. We went rod fishing and I passed a very pleasant afternoon, learning to cast and fish. The arrival of two young locals proved interesting, since they added their skills to ours. At such a young age, their skill far outshone all the adults!! But then this is how they catch their daily food. The scenery was tranquil, the addition of seasonal birds gave us something different to look at. A fine fried fish supper rounded off a perfect day. Thanks so much for sharing your passion, Etienne.
