Dehiwala Zoo & ExcelWorld

29 July 2007

Once again, our dear friend right here in Sri Lanka, Sharmila Cassim, provided an unforgettable day for our Wattegama children during their August school break.  Taking a bus to Colombo, the girls visited the impressive Dehiwala Zoo, followed by a fun lunch at a unique playground-cum-restaurant, followed by our second trip to ExcelWorld amusement park.

Our Day

We left Wattegama home at 4:00am for the 4-hour ride to Colombo, returning at 9:00 in the evening, -a long and fun-filled day that the kids will not soon forget!  Below are some photos to share the day.


Another huge thank-you to Sharmila Cassim for providing another unforgettable day for our Wattegama kids! -and for ignoring the flu and accompanying them for the entire day...  You are a dear friend!
Thanks also to Jagath Navaratne for providing his entire "Twiklers" restaurant and family facility and a fantastic lunch, all complimentary, for our children! -and also for the genuine care and attention you shared with them.   Regards to your wonderful staff as well!
