Paradise Lost

The link below is a pic of a herd of elephants out for a spritz in Sri Lanka.   A paradise of such striking beauty that the author  of  “2001 A pace Odyssey” and inventor of the communication satellite, Arthur Clark, chose the country to retire to.  Now a decade after a painful civil war, the fledgling peace of the Island is shattered by terrorism. On the Easter holiday, 250 innocent Sri Lankins were murdered by eight synchronized  bombings targeting hotels and churches.
