Photos from Kandy, Sri Lanka

I already have lots of photos from Kandy, Sri Lanka on this web site. Here are a few more:

The first photo below shows a dead body being carried past the sacred Tooth Temple in downtown Kandy. The next photo is another picture of the famous Tooth Temple in Kandy. The third photo shows my friend Rene Thompson charging the police in Kandy. (Rene is the dark skinned man in the front row to the left.)

The Tooth Temple is so-named because the actual tooth of Lord Buddha is said to be there. For this reason, the Tamil Tigers (presumably) tried to blow it up. Here is an article about Eight Killed in Truck Bombing at Kandy, Sri Lanka Buddhist Site.

Here is a carefully worded article about the Tigers of Kandy entitled My Mynah Bird.

Rene Thompson, the man in the photo above, introduced me to Oprah Perez and her mother. This nearly got me killed, but that was not the fault of Oprah or her mother or of Rene Thompson.

Other girls I know in Kandy include Dhammika Abeysinghe and Neetah.

However, the most important girl I met in Kandy was Rankoth Pedigedera Dayawathie, who was introduced to me by her mother Ukkuamma Rankoth
