Suba Aluth Avurudhdak Wewa!

Suba Aluth Avurudhdak Wewa is the Sinhalese translation for HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We all had the honor to ring in yet another amazing year on a full moon.  A Blue Moon that is.  A Blue moon is when there are 13 full moons  that occur during that year, 2 of them being in December, once on the 2nd and again on the 31st!  Because of my location in the world, I was also able to see a partial lunar eclipse (where a small part of the moon entered the Earth’s umbral shadow, you can see a small dark shadow on the southern part of the moon)!  I spent the beginning of my evening gathered around a large table in front of the moon lit Indian Ocean, accompany other foreigners as they feasted on local rice and curry and exchanging travel stories and advise.  The table was set out in front a nice little guest house on the beach.  Rumor had it that there would be some good dance music “arriving” shortly.  Within an hour of 2010, my friend Najee, that works at Amanwella, pulled up to the beach revealing the sound system in the back of his car.  This stereo system is unlike ANY system I have ever seen in America.  Quite frankly, I was impressed!  So of course as you guess, I danced the sand between my toes out of 2009 and into 2010!
