A few nights ago, I had the honour of giving a talk at the Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo to a rapt(?) audience comprising corporate leaders and avid photographers.
These poor people had to listen to me for nearly an hour
Over the course of about 50 minutes, I showed a rapid-fire series of images, covering coral reefs, fish life, and whales.
I could've rambled for much longer, but it was Friday evening, and my hosts, being acquainted with my propensity for rambling, asked me to control myself and limit it to less than an hour. Oh well, they have no idea what they missed (insert smiley face).
The talk was the inaugural presentation for the Explore the World series of talks organised by Cinnamon Nature Trails, and supported by Nations Trust Bank, American Express, and the Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo.
Afterward, I was treated to an absolutely delicious dinner at the Mango Tree, which serves excellent North Indian cuisine. With food like that, I'm hoping they'll ask me back again!
