negombo - sri lanka

i might be in love.




negombo is a sizeable town about an hour north of colombo, the capital of sri lanka. once upon a time, this emerald green land grew the best cinnamon in the world. now it is a popular comercial hub, although the colourful fishermen boats mask the poverty their owners live in.

having only landed yesterday afternoon, i am unfamiliar with most of sinalese culture, but for now i am in love: it's ridiculously beautiful and the people are the friendliest i am yet to meet. white, palm-tree lined beaches stretch up to the pretty, flower-lined streets.

oh sri lanka, we're going to have so much fun the next 6 weeks. i can't wait.
