I think this is rich. They live with what they need basically and feel happy about it.
The average earning is maybe the one fifth of our earning , so it is not easy for them to go abroad and
travel around.. Electricity has risen up to 50 to 60%, this is very expensive for them. It is very hot most
of the time, so the tourists use the air conditioner if they live in a house, that is expensive.
The concrete house absorb the hot air from outside, and this is what they use for a house material these days. The mud box( bricks) is cheaper and cooler. I don't understand why more people use concrete to build the house. Not only Sri Lankans but we all need to learn sustainable life style.
