Photographer's Note

This place might speak to at least one person in this forum...
Some others will think "Oh no, not the buddhist monks again" ;)

Anyhow, this is a monk school in Matara southern Sri Lanka. Thanks to him, the lead monk was in his own words very excited to speak to a foreigner and allowed me to photo about anything I wanted for a couple of hours. My 8 yrs old daughter was very interested on how was a school abroad.

Classes of different grades were taking place in a same rough and dark concrete building, -these are some students from the first grades- : natural lighting is not effective for studying I guess, but heavenly for photographying.

While I cannot say for spiritual learning I can attest the Mathematics level was quite good for the terminal grade, it took me some time to resolve the equations written on the blackboard...
