We just landed in Colombo, Sri Lanka after a ten hour red-eye flight from London. We left London Heathrow at 9:30 p.m. and arrived in Colombo at 12:30 p.m.
Colombo is everything you might expect it to be. It’s growing like crazy with luxurious skyscrapers under construction across the downtown area. Counterbalance that with gut-wrenching poverty right next door to the construction.
We’re only here one night and in the morning we take off across Sri Lanka by train to places that are pretty far out in the country. I know the elephant safari in the national park won’t have internet. Although the resort in the tea plantation says it has internet, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t and you don’t hear from us for the next week or so.
Talk to you when we have internet again.
