Day 12 in Sri Lanka

Hello folks,

Latest update. Life is now drama free.

The missing wife had been recovered. It turns out her parents snatched her up because they hadn’t seen her in a while, and when they discovered their cell phone call had been traced and that there was police and Sri Lankan mafia looking for her, they decided to let her go.

The guy who punched a cop got bailed out successfully, and I think he is seriously reconsidering the course of his life.

The fired maid apparently spoke to Niroshi’s aunt (the one who referred her), and claimed that Niroshi & I were trying to get her out of the house so that we could get it on. Interesting notion, considering we have a video of her going thru Niroshi’s purse. I’d love to make it available on the internet for all of u 2 see. I’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, I’m planning to leave Colombo this afternoon, and head for Kurunegala, where my dad’s family came from. It’s going to be nice to leave the city for a while, but I probably won’t have internet access there. So I’ll email you all when I get back, which will be before the weekend. I have to be back before sunday for the christening ceremony. (Interesting especially considering I’m about as far removed from a practicing Roman Catholic as you can get).

Well, I miss you all. I especially miss y’all One Drum members. It’s been interesting playing music here – I’ve turned into a hit machine of sorts – I’ve been playing 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s tunes. Some Eagles, Eric Clapton, Bryan Adams, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, etc – mostly what people request. They have no interest in hearing One Drum tunes. Been playing some La Bamba, Guantanamera, etc. I guess what doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger, eh? The saving grace, however, is that everyone loves Bob Marley, and so do I.

I’m doing much better. My mood has improved dramatically…
