They haven't learned the concept of talking behind ones back.Kids love animals and the environment.Kids love unconditionally, and they love everybody.Kids ...

Random Pics from Galle Went down to Galle last poya day. My father's family is from Galle, and there were some relatives he wanted to visit. We rarely go visiting down that way.The house is right by the railway track, so plenty of trains to see.
