because people speak English
Dear Muge (Mommy)
We have not kept in touch for a long time and you may be wondering what I am up to . I got a letter from you in Turkey , dated October 15th 2011. Much to my dismay , thanks to the crawling postal service here in my country , I got it only today!
At that time I was not in Sri Lanka as I was in Australia for my daughter's graduation . I was fortunate to make it with my husband and share some beautiful memories.
We left to Melbourne on October 7th, very excited like two kids; my husband and I .
We settled in an apartment rented for few weeks at the University premises it self. This was convenient as we living close to our daughter Ayesha. The function was held at the University it self and it was a memorial occasion I would like to share a photo of it with you .
After the function we were free to be tourists and had a wonderful time three weeks of travelling this great country.
We visited many nature and historical sites. Philip Islands, Great Ocean Road ,to name a few.Words cannot explain the splendor and natural beauty .I will share few more photos with you .
The natural habitat at Philip Islands is zealously protected . Philip Islands is an island located about 140 km (87 mi) south-southeast from Melbourne Victoria Named after Arthur Philips, the first Governor of New South Wales
The oceanic view was taken on our trip to Great Ocean Road in Melbourne which is an Australian National Heritage stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia The road was built by war veterans between 1919 and 1932 at the request of the then Government , who had visions to make this road in reality a tourist destination, which it is up to date. The massive road divides into three . Namely the ocean , the rain forests and the cattle farming
Awaiting your visit to my Island in the sun, sunny Sri Lanka!
