I was, as I had for the last 72 hours, was on a mission to find the body.

Happened to see this YouTube video with the  ‘… body lies …‘ title. So, of course, I had to watch it.

I only spotted Rajapaksa (who I don’t know) because he stuck out … the lone figure in white
… yes, the Sri Lankan national outfit (sans the red scarf) … but, with the red, makes him look like a wannabe pope
(which would, of course, make his Catholic wife rather happy).

So, from what I can see, he stayed on after the open air memorial service earlier this week.
