good day sir
what can i get for you?
mineral water? yes sir
how do you like the view?
yes sir the falls are beautiful

you're from america?
i'd love to go there someday
have you been many places?
how do you like our country?

have you come down from kandy?
you know, north of there
the rebels are still fighting
but we are safe here
life goes on

did you stop for fresh coconut milk?
did you see the elephants bathe?
have you seen the women
picking tea on the hills?
one of them is my mother

so, you're ready to order sir?
what's that you ask?
your driver sir?
he'll eat with us behind the building
you want what we're having ? really?

here is your bill sir
thank you very much
perhaps you could write your address on the back
i could write to you
i could write to you
...pleasure sir.
