Quesnel local Joan McNaughton will be giving a second presentation on her October trip to Sri Lanka — this time as part of the Bouchie Lake Lawnchair Travel Series.
She gave her first presentation with her friend Lynne Wright, who accompanied her on the trip with two other friends.
The first presentation was for the Friends of the Library, and was about 45 minutes. The presentation in Bouchie Lake will be close to two hours in length and will feature some Sri Lankan cuisine: coconut pancakes.
McNaughton and friends travelled around Sri Lanka, hiking through the Cloud Forest and climbing the Sigiriya, an ancient rock city in the Central Province of the country. It is named after a massive rock column (which tourists are able to take stairs up) which dominates the landscape.
On their trip, they also experienced a wide diversity of wildlife — including Asian Elephants, leopards, sloth bears, and a wide variety of birds.
The presentation will take place at Rocky’s General Store at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 25. Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
