Ayubowan my friends, today we will tour a small village and taste some traditional Sri Lankan food. Let us begin with a bullock cart ride:

The two ladies are preparing coconut rotis for our group:

Rotis are served on a palm leaf plate, covered with another leaf. They were served with coconut sambol to add more flavour. IMG_7582

Coconut shells were used to serve their special herbal tea:

While they were preparing rotis, we had a chance to see other presentations:

When a baby is born, he or she receives the “third eye”, a black dot on his or her forehead to keep evil spirits away.

Most of their bathroom is under the sky, only the toilet gives you some privacy.
