Tuk-Tuk Goose

Colombo, Sri Lanka, is a cool place. If you don’t know where it is and you own an iPhone, have S-i-ri Lanka it up for you.

Colombo is an extremely busy city, as Traveler Aaron John discovered. 

From dodging tuk-tuks.

To avoiding bikes while trying to cross the street...

But the craziness didn’t keep Aaron from completing his wild goose chase in search of Sri Lanka’s best fabric.

Thanks Aaron for your determination!

So in the midst of life’s busyness...

Here’s to trying to keep calm and curry on… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!
