#andraoprea in Sri Lanka

RO: Gata, am lasat garda jos si-am urlat din toti rarunchii: “Ni s-a luat de frig pana peste cap!”. Oamenii zapezilor, ai frigului si-ai tarilor nordice tanjesc dupa o farama de soare singalez si-o plaja portocalie la Hikkaduwa. Pai doar am luat exemplul Andrei cea calatoare, care-a plecat pe taramuri asiatice de poveste si ne-a lasat amintire gentutele ei hmong. Cat sa nu ne para rau ca nu suntem si noi pe meleaguri vietnameze, la un loc cu doamnele talentate din triburile cu pricina, trebaluind si cosand din zori si pana-n seara. Si daca tot jinduim dupa Asiaย si ale ei dragi popoare si obiceiuri si culturi, si daca n-o fi inca Vietnamul in planurile lui 2017,ย macar sa ne bucuram de povestile nescrise ale Andrei Oprea, ca doar nu degeaba or fi ele laitmotivul site-ului plin de culoare, al blog-ului doldora de poze de ti se scurg ochii si al Instagram-ului care nu te satura de scoll-uri unul dupa altul. Si pana cand ne-om face drum pe la triburile hmong, sa vedem cum se cos manual materialele lor specifice, ducem un pic de Vietnam pe la singalezi. Ba pe-o Unawatuna turistica, ba printr-un parc din centrul tarii, ba pe la elefantii de la Pinawalla ๐Ÿ™‚

EN: Ok, we have to face it and admit that we’re fed up with this cold weather. Those people that we’re simply dying for snow, cold and Northern countries are finally craving for a snatch of SInhalese sunshine and an orange beach at Hikkaduwa. Well, we took it by Andra, our traveler friend who’s wandering the Asian fairy tale lands at the moment and who has left us as a reminder her gorgeous hmong bags. Just enough not to feel sorry that we’re not currently in Vietnam, next to the talented ladies from the hmong tribes, doing all kind of chores and sewing all day long, from sunrise to sunset. And if we keep craving for Asia and her lovely nations and customs and cultures, and if we’ll not get to Vietnam in 2017, at least we canย enjoy Andra Oprea’s ย unwritten stories, as these seem to be theme song of the colorful website, the full of pictures travel blog and the Instagram account which you simply can’t help scrolling over and over again. And until we’ll find our way to the hmong tribes, to see how are those typical fabrics made, we’re taking a bit of Vietnam to the Sinhalese people. On a touristy Unawatuna beach, in a national park in the center of the country or at the Pinawalla Elephant Orphanageย ๐Ÿ™‚
