Craig and Jeane Leaving Tommorow for Sri Lanka

Well we've had family, friends, clients and patients provide us with all sorts of reasons not to go. And of course, there's my own research and the last minute changes we've had to make because overnight camping in the jungle isn't advisable because the Tamil rebels like to hide there.

So...we're going anyway - I will try to post when we reach Bangkok and again at the Kandalama Hotel in SL. After that we'll be out of touch for a little over a week.

Our itinerary is JFK-BKK on Thai then 24 hours in Bangkok. Then BKK to CMB (Colombo, Sri Lanka) with an overnight stay at the transit hotel in Singapore. Then 3 nights Kandalama, 1 night Kandy House, 4 nights Tea Trails, 3 nights southern beach villa, and 1 night near airport. We reverse the route to JFK with a 5-6 hour layover at BKK and a short layover at SIN.

Have a wonderful time!

I'm really looking forward to hearing about your experiences and thereby re-living mine!

I'll be eager to read your check-in from the Kandalama.

I wish I knew how to say bon voyage in Sinhala, but have a great trip all the same.

Can't wait to read another of your great reports upon your return.

Have fun! Safe countries are for sissies! ;-)

And if you meet any Tamil tigers, let Jeane sweet talk them!

Can't wait to start on your trip report,

Lucy

This is clearly a desparate attempt by the Yankees to scour the world for starting pitching. Have a great time and bring back another sore-armed 12-10 geezer.
