Good Vibes

Just returned from our favorite (Only?) Korean restaurant here, great meal, but not why I am writing.

As we walked out of the apartment there was a trishaw as usual waiting for someone to come out from our building, not unusual, and we approached the driver to bargain for a ride.

It was an older gentleman and when I asked how much he told me "You tell me" he knew where I worked, no surprise there. I made him an offer and he gladly accepted and we got in.

He was very friendly and spoke good English and he offered to wait for us at the restaurant. Afterwards he took for us ice cream and then back home.

Well Chris and I both had to agree that this old man just made such a good impression on us. We never know what to expect when we get a trishaw. It's like all of the drivers want to inflate their prices so much. But not this guy.

It's not so much that he gave us a good price as much as he restored our faith in Sri Lanka again!
