Day 7 : Keep a sharp eye

I’m still wet behind the ears. Something bad was going on to my left eye, and I just let it go without doing anything. The result is : I’m blind, partly.

Just kidding.

All happened two days ago. When I was playing with Nicole, she scratched my left eye with her little paws. My eye got infected and started to become really reddish and sensitive to light.

So today, Diyath decide to bring me to the hospital to do some eye check.

But without exception, I started the day with a little session of snapshots.


Diyath got some haircut.

Sri Lankan style newspaper. People here are really enjoying their life. With a cartoon styled newspaper, you can’t be unhappy. Not to mention, with this beautiful lady.

What I found on the way.

My best shot of the day.

A man begged for money, I gave him 100 rupees. Diyath told me that he said some good words to me and wished me a good life. I want say the same things to him, but I don’t speak Sinhala…

Here is Diyath’s girlfriend : Michiko. She brought me all over Colombo to make sure that my eye’s going to be OK. I found she looks a little bit like that lady behind her, so I did something to the photo. I hope she doesn’t mind though…

Then my camera got out of battery. Fuck me. I fell asleep when I got home yesterday because of my eye, so I didn’t charge the battery.

Then I heard this guy telling me : Don’t worry, you’re just gonna be OK.

Day 6 : There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in

Life was suddenly full of possibilities, not to mention a few unexpected surprises. One of the wheel rims was fucked, we have to repair it.

That’s why Diyath called upon his tuk-tuk friend : Suranga.

We were heading to a local tyre repairing store.

There I found some Chinese equipment.

Mr Lijijamandar took a quick look at the tyre and started to work.

Then he told us this tyre can still work for a while, but we’d better replace it with a new one.

The service was charged for 100 rupees = 0.6 €.

Then we went back to have some lunch.

The girls had to go to some private maths class this afternoon. They told me that we were about to go in 20mn after lunch. I took like 30mn further to charge my Gopro camera and transfer all those files. Kana gaatui !! There won’t be a next time.

But the girls seemed all chillax even though they were late for the class.

Later, I had some Sri Lankan kebab with Diyath, Suranga, Irish : Shawrama.

I was a little bit tired and there was something going on with my left eye…

Diyath and Irish had something to do, so they told Suranga to drive me home and also to pick up the girls.

My first tuk-tuk experience with Suranga was very exciting, he’s absolutely the best tuk-tuk driver in Colombo, just look at how close we are to the car. It was like 30mph, and Suranga didn’t hit the brake at all.

While I was amazed by Suranga’s driving skills and enjoying the cool wind on my cheek, I found this.

Hey girls, here is your tuk-tuk guy…

Colombo’s night…

P.S. My left eye was burning and reddish, tears started to shed like a river. Help, I got a problem.
