Week 1

First of all a few clarifications.

Singhalese is the language spoken here.
Sri Lanka is an island off the eastern tip of India.
The people are divided by religion. Buddhist, Muslim and Christian.

Moratuwa is south of the capitol Columbo, the Village is an area within Moratuwa like uptown is to Minneapolis the village is where the 112 houses are being built.

I am part of the medical team. We will go to different areas because the people in Moratuwa have been cared for by group 1. They are what we call in a maintenance mode.

The village is where we build the houses the farm is where we stay.

OK on with the story.

Sri Lankan time=slow,hurry up and wait and 12 hours ahead of you in Minnesota.
