This is again a quick photo story from our recent Sri Lanka holiday. 🙂 During this trip I didn’t capture many photos because I have a lot of holiday photos on my computer which I didn’t print or even didn’t share in blogs so far. Anyway, on any Sri Lanka holiday, we travel to Anuradhapura which is an ancient city of Sri Lanka. We visit there to visit sacred temples and we did the same in this holiday too. On our return, we had a stop at Thalawa which is a village along the route. There is a place that we stop on every visit to refresh ourselves from a long road trip. We identify this restaurant from the far because of this huge tree. I really like the beauty of this large tree.
This time, we had Sri Lankan short eats (snacks) with Ceylon black tea (called plain tea in Sri Lanka).
We bought soft drinks for our son. We wanted him to taste Sri Lankan soft drinks and some drinks that we like to drink. EGB (ElephantHouse Ginger Beer) is well famous among Sri Lankans among all other Ginger Beer brands. Anyway, this is a non-alcoholic soft drink. We bought it for our son.
Then we ordered Cream Soda too. Son was surprised and a bit nervous because usually at home we don’t allow him to drink soft drinks frequently due to health reasons. 🙂 But, during holidays we enjoy all sorts of food.
Below is the soft drinks display of that restaurant.
We asked the son to choose a few to bring back to his grandparents’ home to enjoy during his holiday.
He was surprised and showed me a funny face staring at me 🙂
Along the way, we again stopped at a fruit stall. There are fruit stalls along this route where anyone can enjoy fresh fruits. (Mostly fresh produce from nearby farms)
We bought watermelon and mangoes to bring home. We also ate watermelon on the spot. The watermelon we ate was sweet and fresh that could satisfy our thirst refreshing us forgetting the tiredness of traveling few days.
It was another memorable holiday in Sri Lanka with a lot of funny and happy moments. How was your week? Do you like soft drinks and fresh fruits? Please share your thoughts as a comment. 🙂
