Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is an island in the Indian Ocean southeast of the tip of southern India.

Sri Lanka has a dense population. The island is about the size of West Virginia, but 21,128,773 people live there. Only 1,818,470 people live in West Virginia!

The terrain of Sri Lanka is mostly low, flat to rolling plain and there are mountains in south-central interior.

In Sri Lanka, it is monsoon season 3/4 of the year. They also have the occasional cyclones and tornadoes.

Gutsy and tolerant people must live there!
