These are the experiences of our volunteers in Sri Lanka.

January 2010 group arrives safe and sound in Tangalle.

Posted in Sri Lanka on January 21, 2010

We have ALL arrived safe and sound if not a bit tired.

The main group left the Colombo Airport at 1:00 am and I stayed behind to wait for Warren who was flying in from England @ 2:00 am. It was a much faster trip than in the past as the roads are starting to be repaired. 4-5 hours instead of the 6-7 hours that it used to take.
Everyone was keen to get started even though we had been traveling for more than 30 hours. After settling in and breakfast we headed to the job site around 10:00 am, about 2 hours than later, and got to work. 30 degrees and sunny with about 80% humidity and lack of sleep soon got the better of us and we shut down around 1:00 pm and went back to the Palm Paradise for lunch.
After lunch it was beach and nap time. Most are still suffering from jet lag and I even had to wake some for supper @ 8:00. It was an early night for most. I think with a good night sleep we will all be ready to give'er tomorrow.
