Actually this is Bonie and Palitha and they're on their way to make some repairs to the sala. However, the look on Palitha's face seems to imply that they may be up to something more sinister. I'm not sure why Bonie is carrying his toothbrush with his saw.

This photo is from 3 years ago. A week after it was taken, Bonie had a full cast on his leg from a motorcycle accident. Motorcyclists and tuk-tuk drivers suffer a high injury rate here.

We nearly contributed to the problem today. Bhante shanghaied a 2 ton crew-cab truck from the local government office where one of his parishioners works. We drove down the coast to see a huge old coconut plantation and reforestation project. It seems the bigger the vehicle, the crazier the driver. Ours was no exception.

I was able to get a few new shots yesterday from our excursion into the jungle. Hopefully, I can get them posted after tonight.
