MAJOR EFFORT LAUNCHED IN SRI LANKA TO CLEAR TOURIST BEACHES OF PLASTIC RUBBISH WASHED IN ON THE TIDES
A high-profile effort to keep popular tourist beaches in Sri Lanka clear of plastic rubbish washed in on the tides has been launched.
The government is to buy a high-tech ocean-cleaning vessel with the help of funds provided by Spain.
The Daily Mirror reports plans to “clean 14 tourist beaches and to upgrade them among the best beaches according to international standards”.

SEEING SRI LANKA AND THE WORLD ON A WING AND A PRAYER—AND A WELL-EARNED GIN AND TONIC OR TWO!
Some ladies of a certain age grow old gracefully, and some set out to see the world and Sri Lanka on a wing, a prayer—and a gin and tonic or two!
The Grey Traveller does the latter, and her blogs highlights the many delights of Sri Lanka, a land of lush green vivid vegetation and “the sweetest-tasting cashews I have ever tried”.
The lady writer—no name, no pack drill—says “I’m one of the growing band of ‘grey’ travellers, keen to see this world before it’s too late”.

It asks: “Has it ever happened to you while traveling to come to such a delicious restaurant that you would just want to return there over and over again?”
