The lovely host made us a mix of western and local cuisine and it was amazing!
We had milk rice, little bananas, papaya, honey and tea!
Then, following breakfast, we got the opportunity to speak with and learn about our host and her family. Her husband, formally a tourist guide, recently passed from what we gather to be a brain disease. She has two daughters- the oldest is studying neurological medicine in Washington state (only made possible by scholarship) and her second daughter, here in Sri Lanka, is studying engineering.
In addition, she helped educate us on Maureen’s favorite flower- the red anthurium.
