Today has been a day of strangeness. Became a Sunday School Teacher today. Did a few songs, and despite the fact that some of it had done it a million times before, they all tool great pleasure in telling me all about themselves in English
Basicly sunday is the one day that we go and get somehting to eat at a local resteraunt. We alternate between 3 or 4 places. Last week we were in the Oasis. It is nice, but the menu is limites to 3 things. Omellette, Fish and Curry ( Sri Lankan style. I.e with chilies hotter than the earths core in them- so effectively it is only 2 choices!). Caroline was convinced that on the days we didn't go, they served different things so to try to trick them, we went again today. Unfortunatly the plan backfired as it turns out the menu never changes! Also turns out there are big lizards there. I though it was a komodo dragon, but they are much bigger apparenently. Then tonight there was some kind of creature that looked like it had just crawled out of the Triassic era. Small and black and horrible!
Outside the hotel, saw some kids coming out of the lake dragging a palm leaf. On closer investigation, turns out that they were carrying coconuts and fish on it. They looked rediculously poor.Alot poorer than the children do at smile. (though they knew exactly how to ask for money in english!) Then again, I only see them at tthe school. Not at home. Hopefully we will get a chance to go down and see where they live at some point.
