A relative visiting Sri Lanka sends us updates on what he’s up to. They’re typically interesting and amusing, but this bit in particular had me giggling:
On reaching the hotel I noticed blood on my foot so we went straight to our room to have a look. The moral of this story is, don’t wear sandals in the jungle. Both feet were covered with leeches. No African Queen – type heroics for me. Off we went to the spa. The pretty young girl in the sari spoke little English, but “eeew” turns out to be universal.
