View From up Here

A view from the top of giant stairway, which was carved into a sort of giant rock formation at a temple complex in Sri Lanka. I loved the view, and I loved the way the fabric flags looked with it.

I took this when we visited a small village outside of Masai Mara. I would totally recommend going to visit a village, it’s a really interesting experience, and (at least at the village we visited) everyone was really friendly, and they asked us just as many questions as we asked them.

Inside Sigiriya

This photo was taken inside Sigiriya Rock, also known as the Lion’s Rock, in Sri Lanka. This place is SERIOUSLY COOL, and absolutely worth the visit. It does, however, require a fair bit of walking and stair climbing, so just be prepared. Inside the rock there are these amazing paintings, which you can see on the sidewalls as tourist brush by taking pictures. It gets a little crowded in there, but really you are all there to see the same thing so for the most part people are really polite about letting you get your pictures. The rock is cool on the outside too, it has two massive lions paws carved out of it and in the center there is a stairway that you can ascend and from the top you have an absolutely magnificent view. Totally worth going to look at, I highly recommend it! (I have other pictures of it, I just really like this one because it shows the whole wall, and all the other travelers passing by)

Wedding Party

I snapped this shot of a couple from a wedding party when we were staying in Sri Lanka. We weren’t a part of the wedding, but they looked so beautiful together I couldn’t resist. It was also really cool to see all of the wedding stuff getting set up in our hotel lobby. I’ve only been to two weddings, and both of them were when I was really little, but it was really cool to see the difference between the Jewish American wedding set up and the Sri Lankan wedding set up. (That may also be my inner cultural anthropologist talking)
