⇒Mark Rochkind presents A Summer Program at the library

Mark shares his latest talk, Sri Lanka: An uncommon destination.  We always look forward to his  travel talks, come and step into a fascinating world.

A 16 day wildlife expedition in Sri Lanka with cultural side trips made for a revealing experience.  We saw more than 115 species of birds (including 13 endemics) and a passel of mammals including leopards, elephants, water buffalo, sambar and spotted deer, langur and toque macaque monkeys.  We visited archeological sites dating back to 100 BC.  Two special Sri Lankan dishes we got to enjoy were “egg hoppers” — an egg cooked in a thin hemispherical crepe, and “curd and treacle” — curd made from water buffalo milk and treacle, a product of the processing of raw sugar.  A welcoming country with some tough patches of history.
