Breaking Point: Colombo Dec 15, 2011
Generally its a nice place to visit.Very clean and tidy and very friendly people.The public transportation is very cheap and ideal for back packers.The beaches were lovely! I landed on the 8th July 2011 and it was my birthday as well.I was walking along the Fort and saw the railway station which was bombed once by the tigers.The country is gradually recovering from the civil war and the tourist are treated well in the airport.Sadly the Malays that I met in Colombo were unable to speak Malay though they are Muslims and wears the Malay costumes.

If I ever reach the point of boredom where I draw up a list of my favourite roads in the whole world, I'm pretty sure that Galle Road in Sri Lanka would top it.

Yes, it's busy, noisy, dirty, smelly, smoggy and sweaty but that's precisely what makes it so great. It forces you to see all this life and to become part of it. The fantastically beautiful saris of the women shopping, the incessant honking of the tuk-tuk drivers battling over road space, the most gorgeous egg rotis you've ever tasted, the stench of rotting rubbish being burnt by the kerbside, the midday sun beating down on your face... it's senses overload here!

Galle Road is long, stretching all the way from Colombo to Galle but my personal favourite section runs through Dehiwala and shows a raw, real and certainly non-touristy side of Lanka.

When you visit this amazing island, be sure to jump out of the tuk-tuk and experience this awe-inspiring road. Suck it all in and love it!!
