Colombo, Sri Lanka, is a cool place. If you don’t know where it is and you own an iPhone, have S-i-ri Lanka it up for you.
Colombo is an extremely busy city, as Traveler Aaron John discovered.
From dodging tuk-tuks.
To avoiding bikes while trying to cross the street...
But the craziness didn’t keep Aaron from completing his wild goose chase in search of Sri Lanka’s best fabric.
Thanks Aaron for your determination!
Here’s to you and the beautiful island country of Sri Lanka.
And to its beautiful sunrises...
(Wow, it just dawned on me...getting up that early can be a real sun of a beach)
And to the radical surfers who don’t wear shirts. “Cowabunga, dude! Sun’s out, puns out!”
And, of course, to traveler Aaron for Rupee-tedly going the extra mile to find awesome fabric.
So in the midst of life’s busyness...
Here’s to trying to keep calm and curry on… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

PS. Plus a few more totes so cool, they may just make regular backpacks irrelephant.
Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”
In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
Season’s greetings to you and your family!
We hope you have a great thyme this season doing your favorite holiday things: from cumin together with your family, to wearing warm and comfy cloves, to chili-ing out and taking some time off to rest. Oh and have fun opening presents too, just remember that “it is always pepper to give than to receive.”
From all of us at Taaluma, we wish you a rose-merry Christmas and a dill-lightful New Year!
