Thanks to Edna who went to Sri Lanka for a holiday I got two new beautiful cards for my collection. She bought also a wonderful turtle magnet for me. Even though the magnet was sent from Austria it arrived all togheter on the same day! What a coincidence....

Adam's Peak Sinhalese Sri Padastanaya and Samanaliya, mountain, 7,360 ft (2,243 m) high, central Sri Lanka. It is a sacred mountain, famous as a goal of pilgrimage for Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims. On its summit is a large flat rock that bears the impression of a gigantic human foot. This stone footprint is regarded as Buddha's by Buddhists, Shiva's by Hindus, and Adam's by Muslims, who believe this to be the site of Adam's fall from Paradise.

Sri Lanka an island country in South Asia, located about 31 kilometres (19.3 mi) off the southern coast of India.The country is famous for the production and export of tea, coffee, coconuts, rubber and cinnamon - which is native to the country. The natural beauty of Sri Lanka's tropical forests, beaches and landscape, as well as its rich cultural heritage, make it a world famous tourist destination.

Great Turtle magnet!
