A Time to Gather your Thoughts

I hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas. We have been enjoying the feastive season at Amangalla in Sri Lanka. A wonderful old hotel steeped in hundreds of years of history. They have been celebrating Christmas in true style.

09:26 this morning a two minute silence was held to remember the 230,000 or more people that lost their lives in the devastating 2004 tsunami that hit the coastlines along the Indian Ocean, effecting over fourteen countries. The guests and staff at the hotel lit candles and placed then along the fort wall taking a moment to say a prayer or a few comforting words in remembrance of all those effected, especially the Sri Lankan people living along the coastline just metres below the fort.


  1. I can't see your picture! not sure if it is my computer or yours. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day. There is a film coming here with Naomi Watts based on the tsunami, I think it's wrong on so many levels, so hollywood.

  2. Happy New Year, Laura!
    How beautiful these candles are, and such a wonderful tribute to all of those lost.
