|Dance workshop at the Fulbright Commission|
I'm currently living with the son Janika and his family. There is a studio in the house and the father Peter lives next door. All my food is provided, so there is no need to ever leave the house. I can laze around cross stitching all day or play with my nangi (little sister) and malli (little brother) who are ridiculously adorable, good kids. Yesterday I woke up from my nap to a little voice saying "Sarah-akki" (big sister) outside my door. I opened it and my malli led me downstairs to where the two of them had made me a snack. Made my week. Today I bought some thread so we can make friendship bracelets. Finally I get to hang out with people who share my love of crafts. I thought I didn't like Sri Lankan food, but Janika's wife Inoka makes some delicious grub. Yes, it's mostly curry, but I have a secret chocolate stash to add some variety. Lastly, it's gloriously cool here. Some nights I can sleep in a sweatshirt! All in all, Kandy has been an extremely pleasant change of pace.

And malli. We knocked over cards all day.
