Unhappy Easter

Sunday, April 21, 2019 at 16:34 (UTC+0530)

It has been an unhappy Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka as at least eight bombs (at this point) have gone off in various parts of the country, at churches and hotels and even a zoo.  Karen and I are far from the action, tucked safely away in the hills miles from the nearest potential target, and surrounded by loving neighbors who are keeping us up to date with the latest news.

Like last year about this time there are now curfews and the social media sites (Facebook, etc) have been shut down, so I will post frequently here about our status, and you can still email us and even call my US number to get through to me (via Google Voice and Hangouts).

Schools are closed for the next few days.  In the meantime we are stocked up with food (and beer) and Karen is <s>watching Netflix episodes</s> working remotely.  I'll be sorting through the piles of photos and videos I need to post from the recent holidays and trips to India and Nepal.
