I just got back to Colombo from Jaffna on the 3.30pm Friday flight. Two strange things happened.
At the military airport in Jaffna, we had to walk from the waiting room (I can’t really call it a terminal) along the runway to a siding to get to our plane today. As we got closer, we realized they were still fueling, so we the passengers told the airport personnel that it might be a good idea if we held back until they were finished. He even allowed me take a photo of the plane being refueled.
And the next story is especially for Bowen Islanders. You’ll remember a few days after our Bollywood on Bowen fundraiser for the Cove Commons (Bowen’s Library Annex & Gallery extension project), there was another Bollywood Party down by Doc Morgans where top performers from Asian Paints were treated to a feast of Bowen’s best foods and a whole lot of music and dancing Indian style.
Well, the guy sitting next to me on the flight home from Jaffna today works for Asian Paints and he told me the only time he was ever in Canada was this Summer in Vancouver. This rang a bell with me so I asked if he knew of Bowen Island and guess what – he was at the Asian Paints party on Bowen! Can you believe it??
When someone says it’s a small world, do they realize how really small it is?!
