    Thank you for these photos and captions. Sri Lanka is such a beautiful country but the conflict has overshadowed its many positive attributes. It’s really lovely to see these photos which capture everyday life in Sri Lanka and display some of the country’s extraordinary historical sights.

    I thoroughly enjoy reading and learning about the customs and traditions of your country. I think I see many parallels between celebrations and artifacts of Sri Lanka and India…is that true??? the photography is awesome…it makes me want to add Sri Lanka on my “To do” list!
