Medic alert

Si writes today that he cut his foot on a rock at the beach, but has had it bandaged and disinfected, and he's confident that it'll be fine. The same applies to his skin rash, which he and Jon diagnose as related to the fish spice he was eating in the village. That's about all in this message.

Sorry I haven't written in a while. I've been living out of the village, which is in and of itself a whole different experience from the rest of the island. The villagers were exceedingly friendly and caring, though a little bit overmothering. (Is that OK grammar? Oh well.) One thing that I've notinced that's ingrained into Sri Lankan culture is that you don't drink without eating and you don't eat without drinking. When someone invites you over for a cup of tea, "tea" ranges from tea with biscuits to a wide variety of drinks with a full-sized meal. Which means something totally different here. For example, they don't ask you if you want more, and if you don't fend them off, they will refill your plate with huge mounds of rice and curry numerous time. Here they also don't name meals, but they do ask if you've eaten rice. Which makes sense, because here it's the rice itself that's that main part of the meal as opposed to the curry. Well, today we're going on a day trip down to the southeast a bit to look at the tea plantations. Incedentally, the tea I had in the village is the best I have ever tasted. When I mentioned this to Nilanti, the mother at the house I stayed in, she burst out laughing and explained that they only get the worst of the crop on the island. Well, I have to get ready to go. Bye!
