SRI LANKA

SRI LANKA - Steeped in Culture Finding a good travel story often involves the help of serendipity, a word itself derived from the old name for Sri Lanka. Damaged by decades of civil war, this beautiful island off the coast of India is in desperate need of good press. Robin and Julia explore a remarkable religious festival, stumbling upon a bizarre, bloody ritual guaranteed to make your jaw drop. As Julia explores the impact of domestic turmoil on tourism, Robin learns about the growing and manufacturing of world famous Ceylon tea. - Video, pics, articles here...

Meanwhile, Robin discovers a doctor in Taipei who uses fire to heal, and decides to find out if he can cure the cement plane-seat knots in his back. Together they brave the bowls at Modern Toilet, a toilet themed restaurant. - Video, pics, articles here...
