Colombo, Sri Lanka - Vihara Maha Devi Park, formerly known as Victoria Park, Golden Buddha statue

Quick stop-over in Sri Lanka’s capital city, Colombo, just long enough to have a speedy visit of the city.  And that it was indeed! 

We’re really feeling the fatigue of traveling after all these months!!

I never thought I’d be this anxious to return to France, but YES that’s the case!!!

So sightseeing around the city was short and sweet.  Not much in the mood to try to visit all the sites, due to our exhaustion!!

The little we did see of Colombo, though, was nice.  It actually reminded me a lot of an Indian city, so not that enthusiastic about sightseeing.  Just too tired!!!  :(

We did grab a bite to eat, which was quite tasty.  I can’t remember what it’s called, so let’s just say it was some sort of curry .

. . of course!!

Yeah so our time in Colombo was pretty uneventful, which is just fine because the last thing we needed at this point were more headaches to be added to our ever so present fatigue!

But it’s not quite over yet!!  Our adventure will continue even once we step foot on civilized territory, aka La Belle France!!! 

To be continued . . .

Tout a été visité en une après-midi, je n’ai pas vraiment constaté de changement entre le Sri Lanka et l’Inde, peut être quand même une population moins dense.

On prit le bus le matin pour le centre ville, on visita, prit quelques photos, mangea un bon morceau et nous retournâmes à l’aéroport. On ne s’était pas vraiment aperçu que Colombo était la capitale.
