Monitor Lizards

One day in Sri Lanka when we were heading from one city to the next the driver pulled over so we could see the monitor lizards along the side of the ride on the river bank.  We have monitor lizards in Malaysia and Singapore, but these are bigger than the ones I am used to seeing.  The ones in Malaysia were more of a tan/gray color.  They didn’t have patterns on them.

Here in Sri Lanka they are thought to be bad luck. If one walks in your front door and out your back door you are supposed to have bad luck.  I’m thinking if your house was that close to a river in a place that floods as well as Sri Lanka does, you are guaranteed to have bad luck.

P.S. I was playing around with iMovie backgrounds. Didn’t realize until this movie rendered that the map in the background has a pin right in Sri Lanka!
