Impression of Sri Lanka
That memorable country is as sweet as black tea, even until now i would always smile every time when i drink Ceylon black tea, no matter it is now, not-too-distant day, or the distant future. Because the word Ceylon is no longer a distant blur of the shadow, but an actual country i once traveled by myself, which includes a wide range of all kinds of people, things, animals, softly wrapping around me just like mist on the tea mountain, the cool India ocean breeze. Over the years, Sri Lanka has not been included in my travel plans, it is not an travel destination in my heart. I always felt that Sri Lanka is the replica of little India on the India Ocean, for their culture, nationality, religion, dietary, ethnic groups are so similar.
India is always complicated, profound, and historic, while Sri Lanka is the small reflection on the India Ocean, which is a little simple, intelligent, tropical, crisp and bright… … The old reference of Ceylon is closely related to black tea, for my favorite tea is originated from Ceylon. Its authentic sweet just suits me. Sri Lanka often reminds people of Buddhism. The Temple boy Ma Dewang encountered told me that the monks of the highest level monastery in their go to Sri Lanka to study, which is the origin of Hinayana Buddhism in Southeast Asia. Black tea, Buddhism, elephant, tropical, her dark skin, brilliant saris, brilliant smile, the lion on the flag, the once United Kingdom colony, the island as turbulent as tear on the India ocean, which are my impressions of all Sri Lanka.
Take a general look at this lovely country. What it has exactly? And how it is different from India? Elephant orphanage. The elephants going home after bath, and going ashore mammothly. Nuwara Eliya, the tea mountain we visited in a tea factory, and the dotted whiteness indicates that the lady was picking tea. In the evening, Muslim boys walking on walls in the ancient city of Galle were ready to play cricket. I also heard of a Tamil Tiger organization, which was linked with Sri Lanka. It seems like a terrorist group seeking independence, except this I know nothing about it. I got to know this country just in this summer, from abstract impression of text and pictures, to the immediate impression in front of me. The ambiguity and clarity leave a colorful colorful collage as a souvenir. It's also not so bad.
