The coast of Ceylon is a differ ent green to any she had ever seen with dozens of catamarans (native fishing canoes) all along it. On t6 Colombo, viewed the harbour which is man made and not nearly-as big.as one would imagrie. Streets possess plenty of noise from the natives. A "gulleygiilley-' man (mnagician) was putting on a show (peas un derithe thimble trick, etc.) On viewing the Bhuddist temple shoes had to be removed before entering the temple. There were huge statues of Bhudda scattered everywhere, and highly ,decora ted. Each shop in Colombo has two men outside who try to push you inside, talking, and shrieking all the time. If you do go into the shop one is almost forced to buy-something. (Since this letter was written Miss Collis has arrived in'London)
