My first written and stamped postcard from Sri Lanka! Awesome! Thank you very much Edeltraud! Beste!

Pinnawala is a village in Kegalle District of Sri Lanka and is around 90 km from the capital, Colombo. It is well known for its elephant
The Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage is situated northwest of the town of Kegalle, halfway between the present commercial capital Colombo and the ancient royal residence Kandy. There are about 84 elephants under protection. The orphanage is open to the public.

Did you know?

Because the country has lots of waterfalls, most of Sri Lanka’s electricity is powered by hydro-powered energy.

I send love!

This is my first postcard from Sri Lanka! Thank you very much ‎Snježana!

This card shows Sigiriya Rock in Sri Lanka. It is a huge monolith on which top are the ruins of a fort. Since 1982 it is declared as UNESCO heritage.

Great card. The drawings on the walls are really cool.

I send love!!
