Robert Hansen travels to Sri Lanka

a. From Bombay, Robert traveled south by train to Tamil Nadu, then took a ferry across Palk Strait and traveled south to Colombo, Ceylon, his destination.
b. Robert took to meditating in his tiny cabin, right above the engine room. Coming out of meditation one day, he was jarred by the giant engine’s piercing noises. He mentally called for the noise to stop, and the engines halted for days. c. During the four-week voyage, the cultural troupe practiced on the ship’s wooden deck and Robert enjoyed the first real solitude of his life. They disembarked in Bombay.
