colombo, sri lanka:

Jami-Ul-Alfar Mosque in Pettah













































My final post from gorgeous Siri Lanka (finally - oops!). We had just a few hours up our sleeve to spend exploring Colombo, Sri Lank's most populated city and economic hub. We stopped off on our way from Bentota to the airport, before making our journey home. So while we didn't get to explore the city in depth, we did get to tick off a few things, like visiting Barefoot Cafe, meandering around bustling Pettah and taking in Geoffrey Bawa's residence at Number 11. After spending a very relaxing week by the beach, Colombo felt frantic, busy and congested. But I did see a lot of potential, and did wish we could have explored it a bit further. Next time!

This last lot of snaps are mainly from Petttah, the busy market area of Colombo and Geoffrey Bawa's residence. Both totally worth visiting if you have a short time in the city.

Thank you , Sri Lanka - you were just so lovely.

Next: an update on the latest and our next big adventure!

  1. "... I did see a lot of potential." That's exactly what I felt the last time I came to Colombo almost two years ago. The city was different from when I went for the first time in 2012. This time I could feel the energy emanating in the air. So many potentials and opportunities waiting to be explored further.

  3. These photos are beautiful. I always imagined Colombo to look a lot like the buildings I saw in India, but these are far more unique. Great photos.
