From Batticaloa, Sri Lanka

It’s taken two delayed flights, long waiting lines and really bad traffic, but I’m here, albeit about two days later than expected. One of the Orphanage Administrators is away, so that will have to wait until Wednesday when he returns; the other has a partial list of needs, some of which I will have to edit/audit. 

Bought kitchen utensils, pots and pans, a DVD/CD player and a few odds and ends for the girls orphanage. Paid RS 50,000 towards the kitchen renovations—the Administrator said it should be about  RS 150,000 (about $1,500 CDN) to finish.
