An honest-to-blog, QUICK update.

So today’s the 1st of September which means that in 10 days, I’m going to be leaving my beautiful home country and embark on a 5 year degree in International Area Studies.


Nope, I’m still intimidated. I thought if I said that sentence out loud (actually, TYPED) I’d feel more okay with it but nope, still walking about on tip-toes with my brain swirling like the Maelstrom.

It’s been a busy week or two now as my impending departure is kind of like a newborn baby. It demands constant attention, unprecedented documentation and a lot of clothes and stuff. And none of that has been easy doing, especially because my monthly Internet Data Plan Limit thing that ISPs here do only reset today which leaves me with only 8/9 days of ready-making to get around.

But yes, what else happened?

The Esala Perahera, one of the oldest, most culturally important festivals in Sri Lanka ended on Sunday. It is a fifteen day event and consists of three phases of nightly parades. The first five days, the parade is held within the grounds of Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy and is usually closed to the general public. The next five days is the Kumbal Perahera, the second phase of the perahera where the parades wanders the streets of Kandy. The last five days is the Randoli Perahera which is usually the phase that attracts most viewers. Incidentally, Perahera is the Sinhala word for Parade.

So I watched the last Kumbal Perahera and even though it isn’t generally as impressively awesome as the Randoli parades, I enjoyed it very much. Sadly my camera is too shit to effectively capture torchlit (by torch, I mean fire torch) night parades.

So that’s it basically.

I probably won’t have enough time in the next following days to actually make a post so I’ll probably reblog something I find here (I know I professed my deep aversion to reblogging but I have no other options). So my next, genuine, post that I write will probably be from America.

See you on the other side? No that’s too morbid, what’s a good send-off?
I guess I’ll stick to the classic,
