Adam's Peak by The-Freak-Nora Adam's Peak by The-Freak-Nora
Hi! Here is my first photo from Sri Lanka! For those of you who do not know, I currently live in Sri Lanka, working as a volunteer with children. Last weekend we went to climb Adam's Peak, a high mountain. We climbed by night to see the sunrise in the morning, and it was amazing.

The mountain is known to be sacred. At the top of the mountain, you can find a footprint that is way too big to be by a human. According to the Buddhist people, the footprint belongs to Buddha, according to Hindu tradition, it is supposed to be Shiva's and according to Muslims and Christians, the footstep is Adam's.

This is one of the photos from the top! 5200 steps!


Hope you like! All feedback is highly appreciated! :heart:

I see true magic here, and I think this picture does prove not only its existence, but also theory that if you do something wonderful (as working with children and helping people altogether, especially in such unselfish way you), then do expect some miracles and wonders to come into your life ^_^ I'm pretty sure you your life is full of them. Thank you so much for sharing this magic moment with all the rest of the world (that stands and stare at it, full of amazement and a feeling of gratitude).
