I live in Sri Lanka. It is a country in South Asia. Sri Lanka exports 11.3% of tea leaves. Volleyball is the national sport of Sri Lanka. There are two official languages spoken in Sri lanka and they are Sinhala and Tamil. Sri Lanka is blessed with lots of wildlife. The flag of Sri Lanka is one of the world's oldest flag. Sri lanka has many tourist attractions and the famous one is 'the Sigiriya' ( Lion Rock )
