Sri Lanka continues to emerge from the 25 year civil war with the Tamils. They are quickly re-building the entire infrastructure and remodeling buildings in Colombo and throughout the country. It is a wonderful and safe place to visit now and there is plenty of incredible art, textiles, culture and history to absorb, and many opportunities to engage with the people. Don't forget the tea. You must save a few days to travel up into the tea country and stay for awhile at the Ceylon Tea Trails luxury villas. You will be invited to tour Norwood, where the tea is dried and ground. The aroma is intoxicating. You will also enjoy a fresh cup of tea.
Please come back as I am adding to this gallery and blog. There is much to experience in Sri Lanka. It is truly a land of many beautiful faces.
