...the less spiritual parts

I would be dishonest if I didn't share another favorite part of my trip... the not as spiritual but just as lovely part of things, the shopping! If you know me at all you know I love shopping and bargain shopping even more. Being that the cost of living is lower in Sri Lanka the shops were much more affordable. I thought I wouldn't be doing my tourist duty if I didn't bless the shops with the patronage, so of course I did. Stephanie and the girls of Bethany were so great to serve us and take us shopping when we had a little free time. Here are my favorites....

Oh the clothes! I am a sucker for tunics and leggings, and the Sri Lankan women have mastered this art. I had to cut myself off at the second shop. 

Possibly a little known fact, there is a new phenomenon happening in Sri Lanka... paper making out of Elephant dung...yes you heard correctly. Naturally I had to purchase some poo paper for my loved ones 

Even a cute owl tank for my little

Tea is one of the biggest exports of the country. I loved the tea so I brought some stateside. A moment of honesty: I bought the wooden box kind because I loved the box itself but, bonus- the tea inside is delicious as well. 

And last but certainly not least my prized purchase during my time overseas.

Thanks for entertaining my silliness. To put you at ease be assured I didn't use any trip donations for my shopping escapades ;). And if you are disinterested in shopping don't worry, I will share something more holy tomorrow :)
