I was pumped to be able to walk to the market this morning, which only happens once a week, for a few hours. I picked up papaya, limes, tea, ground turmeric and some fresh ginger. The locals stared at me, most with smiles, and giggled when I rattled off my little bit of Sinhalese. I also picked up some assorted fruits for Fabrizio...the Italian longboarder a who gifted me a screw for my fin that nearly was lost in the sea this morning!! I don't know what I would have done without him, so I expressed my gratitude with a fruit basket. Ha. Beautiful morning, Beautiful country.
