One year later.

On the last flight before landing in Sri Lanka.



We have been here a year, and what a year it has been!

When we first arrived here, and we were adjusting to everything- you know, the heat, the bugs, and other creatures -Ben gave us all some words of wisdom.

"All of these things have been in Sri Lanka long before we arrived, and they will be here long after we leave."

I have gone back to this many times. Every time I get frustrated, I realize that I two options, try to change Sri Lanka, or I can adapt.

I have to tell you that I have found it is easier to change myself.


One year later.

We love it here, and think it is a fabulous place to live! We have created a great life here, and we are excited for our adventures in the next year.

Ben's words of wisdom are quite wise indeed. I think it is also true about any place we go with this style of life. :) I also wish I could come visit you and see Sri Lanka. If only I was bathing in money...

Congratulations on surviving your first year!

I can't believe you've been there a year! It doesn't seem like it was long ago that we were hanging out in your temporary place and eatin' Cafe Rio!
