My “Cousin” Upali With Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau During His Visit To D.C. On February 13, 2017.
OK, just for the record he is not my real cousin though he is definitely considered very much family. He has been in the family for over 35 years, ever since he was 12. He lived with my parents for a long time.
He has worked in D.C. Embassies since 1992 — starting when my father was the Sri Lankan Ambassador to D.C.
He now works for the Canadian Embassy (and loves it).
This picture was taken Monday afternoon at the Canadian Embassy and includes some of the support staff.
It, as proclaimed by the seal at the bottom, is an official, ‘Office of the Prime Minister’ photograph. So, I think it is very much public domain — though Upali sent it to me and said it was ‘OK’ to post. I blurred out the other faces out of a surfeit of caution — given today’s sad climate.
Just thought it would be cool to share.
