Weekly A to Z, May 7th.
The 'is it May already?' one.
A relaxed week in Sri Lanka — even after EK/Fly Dubai moved our flights twice. What was going to be a return on the night of May 3rd changed to the middle of the night on the 4th and then to midday on the 4th. This worked out in our favor, as we were able to a) visit Ministry of Crab, b) not sleep on a plane c) get to stay at Tintagel (based on this recommendation from Eat Go See).
The remainder of the week was catching up, and I was fortunate enough to head to Demon Duck on Friday night. More thoughts soon! #invited
Finally, although most of you aren’t Americans, the attack on women’s rights this week cannot go without a mention. Consider making a donation to the national network of abortion funds, showing up (in any capacity), or contributing to other important places.
