It's day three of our big family adventure and we're in Sri Lanka; already Jessica (our 3 year old) is calling Zum Deutschen home. As we were walking home from the beach in the dark last night she asked me if we were nearly in our garden. I knew children were adaptable but 3 days to forget about our old deck in Tooting was quick - I hope she doesn't expect every home to have a swimming pool from now on!
It rained on and off all day yesterday but the sun has now come out. So we've spent all morning in the pool - or rather what was left of the morning , Jess and Otto have been sleeping till about 9:30/10:00. Bonus lie in thank you jet lag! Then the afternoon on the beach with the grazing cows (a big hit with Jessica and Otto)
The pool is shared with a kingfisher and there is a rather large monitor lizard and a few mongoose in the garden also - ,which the kids think is great. The beach is a five minute walk and is very quiet as we're about 3km south of the main Bentota beach where all the big resorts are.
Let's hope the sunshine stays around for a bit longer.
