Wherever we are, I'm always fascinated by the animals.  As I've mentioned before, Sri Lanka was great because the animals were all free to do what they wish.  This point is no more clear than in this picture.

There are a few interesting things in this scene in Colombo, a city of 1.2 million.  1) a stop light- something rare in Sri Lanka.  2) a mix of styles- young and old.  3) most importantly- that is a goat just chilling out on the street corner, minding his own. 

You just just don't see that every day.

Aside from goats, we saw all sorts of animals.  Here are a few:

Water buffalo stopped traffic multiple times

Monkeys were everywhere

But not nearly as many monkeys as dogs.  Most looked better than this, but some were much worse.

This is the kind of thing that Sachi is most scared about in places like Sri Lanka. The scorpion.
