____________ This is happening at the Jungle Beach Resort, near Trincomalee, on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka.
We're in Sri Lanka, I know you're imagining elephants, leopards and giant spiders, they have those, don't worry, but they also have spotted deers. You know, the Bambi kind. It feels like they're far away from the northern forest we imagine them in, but they're right here, in the jungle. The group of deers you see above are actually orphans. From what we could gather, the villagers gave them to the hotel we were staying in, hoping they would take care of them. Now forget about that image you got of desperatly shy deers, that can only be observed from a distance. Those ones were like cats, always looking to be near people, searching occasions to get petted and mostly trying to get a taste of your yogurt. This was pretty incredible, and all the guests, Sri Lankans and foreigners alike, were astonished.
