Thanks Giving - Touch of Sri Lanka at a New York Thanksgiving
The aroma of curried turkey wafted around the residence of the Sri Lankan ambassador to the United Nations as Dr Palitha Kohona entertained guests to lunch on Thanksgiving day. Among the guests were H.E. Sun Guoxiang (Consul General of China in New York) and Mrs Wang Min, Professor Surendra Kaushik, DPR Ambassador General Shavendra Silva, Drs Anura and Trika Rajapaksa, Painter Mr Stephano and Mrs Losi, Mr Sunil Herath, and Ms Anna Marie Salomaa of Finland. The aroma of the spiced up turkey, which was a novel break from tradition, is sure to linger in the memories of the guests for some time.
