Another tour today at the Sri Lankan New Year Festival. A number of these events and celebrations are held in the Queen Victoria Market, I’d like to find a list of them somewhere!
You know my style of interview? I ask the interviewee questions, starting with basic questions. Then they tell me and the audience the answers, they describe what they’re doing and why they’re doing it – that’s how an interview works. No one wants to hear my views on, say, Indian Coffee, when I have an expert to tell us. I’ve been doing this for radio productions since 1985. Alas! One of the virtual tourists wrote a dreadful review about my ignorance. And, because I laugh a lot in my tours, she took that as disrespect to the Sri Lankans. Sigh.
Ah well, I’ll have to ignore that review. I’m not going to stop asking questions and I won’t stop laughing (I’d find that one hard).
Here’s a surprise that cheered me up! One of the virtual travellers, Chris Mentzer snapped a pic of the old man and our youngest grandson.
