Over the winter holiday, Tadashi's travels led him to the tiny island nation south of India, Sri Lanka. While there, he stayed at the iconic Galle Face Hotel in the heart of Colombo. This trip was a wonderful experience and he is anxiously awaiting his return. 

One of Tadashi's favorites – Lion paws guard the staircase at Sigiriya, famous for its palace ruins built on top of the massive 200 meter high Lion Rock.
