Fun Fact 🔜 Those familiar with the world of gemstones know that one of the aspects is the stone’s hardness. A diamond’s claim to fame, besides for its one-of-a-kind brilliance, is that it is the hardest substance known to man. It ranks 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness, the highest possible ranking. However, next on the scale and still quite impressive is the sapphire as well as the ruby. This makes both of these gemstones phenomenal options for jewelry as they are sturdy and can withstand being knocked around a bit. #ibrahimjewellers#1909

Rankoth Vehera is a stupa done King Nissankamalla who ruled the country during the 12th century. Rankoth Vehera is a structure made entirely of brick, and has a base diameter of 550 feet and a height of 108 feet.

Our plane landed on Easter Sunday, and we got the news after exiting the airport. There was panic everywhere as the bomb blasts didn't stop, ambulance sirens were getting louder, the streets were empty and the shops were closed. We were hungry but couldn't find anything to eat due to the curfew. We felt helpless. But the hotel staff was amazing. They provided us with snacks and tea. For dinner, they cooked ramen and eggs. We checked out the next day, and later discovered that they didn't charge us for food. The gesture touched us and it was just a start to the beautiful journey.
Sri Lanka is a beautiful country, but the people are the reason why this trip became memorable. Everyone we met greeted us with a huge smile on their face. They went out of their way to ensure that we feel welcomed and safe. From the hotel management to the local police, from our driver/guide to the shop vendors, everyone was with us.
There were few trippers who wanted to go back on the first day, and I smiled every time I saw them enjoying without any worries. As we travelled across the country, I saw the lush green nature and sun again, the smiling kids running along and I remembered all the good and how much I love this country and the people. I remembered how much light there is and how rapidly it's growing amongst all of us. And this big sense of peace and trust fell on me.
