I’d like to introduce you to a friend of mine, actually he’s a friend of everyone who’s ever stayed at the Galle Face Hotel in Colombo.
His name is Kasun and he’s worked there for 69 years.
Kasun recently celebrated his 91st birthday and guess what – he still walks the 3km to and from work every, single, day.
As I already knew there were, I’m finding so many incredible people again on this trip through Sri Lanka. The differences in lives, goals, wants and needs from those we see commonly in Australia is immense. It’s a simpler way of life here, about family, food and it’s the simple things that matter.
